Rachna is going to need Rachel to pack a water bottle. The 1904 Olympics were, to be generous, a catastrophe. Against a backdrop of horrible planning, racist sideshows, and the worst racing conditions in history, a motley crew of unlucky runners lined up for the marathon. Then they started dropping like flies. And when things are such a disaster from the start, the only way to finish is with a little illicit help.

we are putting on our masks, we are washing our hands all the time, loading up on a hand sanitizer.


2020 has been so ridiculous and we got through it. We're getting through it. It's September


baby. I am regularly putting on a bra. That's the first time that I've said that in six months.


So cheers to that. Miller High Life was created to bring pride to the simple things in life.


Miller High Life has been faithfully brewed the same way since its start on New Year's Eve in 1903.


Celebrate responsibly Miller Brewing Company, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


Hey everybody, I'm Rachel Bonetta and I'm Rechna Frappon and this is Hall of Shame.


Hi Rachel. Hello. How are you feeling my friend? I am missing an organ that I once had. I got my


gallbladder removed. You guys. And now your gallbladder less. I'm gallbladder less. I am on a strict


diet of just basically jello and soup which is miserable. For how long? I don't know. I don't know.


It's kind of like a touch and go situation. I got to feel how I'm feeling basically. I also have


to warn you that I'm still somewhat on drugs. So this could get a little... That's just like a fun


situation. Hey. Hi. Can I tell you two quick stories? Yeah. The first one being when I was coming out of


my anesthesia. I met this lovely nurse shout outs to Tim. Okay. Tim gave me lots of drugs at the


hospital and I tweeted something out about that. I was just like I just got my gallbladder removed,


shout outs to Tim. Tim managed to find this, started tweeting me and I was like oh dear Lord Jesus,


what did I say? Because you were just like loopy. I was just stony baloney all night long hanging


out with my pal Tim. You're like Tim. I don't know what I said. Are we married? Are we what's going on?
