S1E23 - Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Surprisingly Good?!?)

What. What? WHAT!? Why is "Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai", an INSANELY-named show, actually one of the most down-to-earth, well-written, heartfelt shows that we've ever reviewed? Well, listen to Hal and Pax dissect Adolescence Syndrome, as well as a... really personal talk about our traumas and feelings of invisibility.

I'm not sure how many folks read the shownotes, but I'm genuinely grateful to have you as a listener. I love doing podcasts with Hal every week for y'all, and we've been blown away by the response. I can't thank you all enough for the support, and the messages that we get from you are a big reason why we felt so safe to have some real-talk at the end. I hope you have an awesome day, and thank you for your love.
