Lauren’s new around here, and she wants to get to know Mike and Arielle a little better. So she came up with the prompt for this episode: What’s the stuff you can’t live without? In this hour, we go deep into our personal relationships with inanimate objects. Which, as you surely know, isn’t weird at all.
Some notes: There are no recommendations this week. The entire show is filled with recommendations, so get our your pen and your highlighter and give Amazon a heads up.
