The girlies recount the history of humanity's most romantic creation — the love letter — and its contemporary counterpart, the sext. They talk James Joyce’s fart fetish, what revenge porn looked like in the 70’s, and why the American public waged war on teen sexting in the 2000’s. Digressions include raising awareness about The Great Vyvanse Shortage of 2023, a lament about the failure of American language education, and one listener’s poet boyfriend from hell.

no one's talking about? Please speak on. There is a great stimulant war that is going


on right now. And there are no, I'm talking about Vivant specifically because that's


the medicine I take for my ADHD. But I tried to call my Vivant's in and I got the prescription


and the woman at CVS was like, it's on back order. And I'm like, okay, my psychiatrist
