Live from Quarantine!
It's a Fictitious Dishes talent show! Unusual times call for an unusual approach to recording a band's advice podcast. So this week, we got on Zoom and performed songs for each other, while also doling out advice on intrusive landlords and how best to love your cat. The sound quality is a little wonky (full disclosure: most of the songs were re-recorded separately), but the heart remains the same. You can also see the visual version on YouTube!

Who Needs a Theme?
From old coffee to the royal family, nothing connects this episode's advice except the precision insight of the Dishes! In this addition of the podcast, the band covers expired food, the distribution of chores, and the topic you've long waited for them to weigh in on - Megxit!
