Season 4 Ep 3: Well, now what?
Like all of you, the cancellation of many events in our lives, including 2020 regionals has had a profound effect on us. We wanted to take an episode to share how we’ve been handling it and some wacky ideas we have for staying in touch. This can’t keep us from being our goofy selves, so enjoy some of that too!

When the risers get restacked, sometimes you end up with logistics concerns. Kim shares her water bottle struggles. Plus the Dames get a hold of the list of the newest registered quartets and tell you about their favorite names this year. There also a couple of quick updates to share from last year’s top 15 quartets (who do not have to compete at regional because they automatically get invited back to international).
