Other topics include Nicole’s trip to an exclusive Outhouse Speakeasy and Christie’s upcoming appearance on The Bachelorette. Like us on Facebook so...

21: Underwhelming Cults

This week Christie and Nicole discuss a variety of things that are considered to have cult followings, yet they continue to only slightly enthuse (at most) the Dynamic Duo.
