9/12/2017

Probably less than five minutes into recording with Nicolle about being yourself on social media, we knew we had made a friend. She was such a fun person to talk to and get to know! We’re definitely going to watch the Stranger Things Season 2 premier together over Skype, so if that doesn’t give you an idea of how our conversation went down then I don’t know what will.

This week, we talked the ear off of Page 261’s Nicke Minder – sarcasm queen and shop boss. Sometimes you talk with somebody and know right away you want to be friends forever – that’s how we felt with Nicke.
