Ep. 41 My first ever love letter
After a long hiatus Mari is back in the pod tent to tell you why she loves you. And how she has spent the last few months.

Episode 8 First thoughts from social exile
Even with a ton of corona content already circling the Internet, there still seems to be a fair bit of middle ground and personal accounts lacking. Which is why Mari entered the pod tent this week with the sole intention to fix that. She also somehow ended up talking about her mother's tits and other borderline inappropriate things. Which means your social isolation listening experience is bound to be amusing at least. No fluffy inspirational stuff or doomsday talk here - just brutal honesty and ill-timed jokes in abundance.
