Anika and Social Media

12/17/2018
More
Anika Bakken joins the boys to discuss their mutual love/hate relationship with social media. She opens up about growing up immersed in various platforms, how her relationship with it has changed over time, and her goals to continue using it to help others. Catfish deflects per usual, but commits to the gag at least. And Carl continues working on his poor impression of a good interviewer.
