Episode 50: Jack Brennan stole your girlfriend
This is it! Numero 50. The end has come. Babs & Coop set out to entertain opposite sides of topical conversations; and it only took 50 episodes for Babs to become bitter and full of rage just like her heroic co-host! Bike lanes are dumb and useless, Citadel Hill is a relic and a pylon and PEI rules; pretty much sum up the soul of the past 50 episodes. In this final episode, the two bring their complete Afterthoughts of the pod, Spirit captain Andi comes to visit and Producer Marc is hungover. Strong Feelings asks - are we entering a period of "great rudeness" as a result of "living our lives.." that we are unable to return from? News Flash has Babs spinning over the Gabbie Pettito case; and Jack Brennan is here. Girl Talk asks, why can't Moms be free to be dirtbags like Dads? Dad seg has Coop wondering if his daughter will listen to the pod when she's older and be horrified or proud? However, it turns out everything on the internet lasts forever, except podcasts on Spotify bahahahahahaaa so Coop's daughter is S.O.L. Hospitality Hot Takes offers free, important advice for the thousandth and final time - please people pay attention so Babs doesn't explode. And as always, Songs of the week & Quick 3! It's been fun. Thanks for listening.
