We start the new year with some sweet 90’s music and boy band talk, Alex updates us on his therapy journey, and we talk new year’s resolutions.

Andy gushes about how much she loves the SNL sketch “Welcome to Hell.” (It’s amazing!) and Andy and Joleen share scary road stories and experiences with harassment and the issues we face as women and as female comedians.

We wrap with a really great article discussing 5 New Years Resolutions for Mental Health: https://www.pca-nwa.com/new-years-resolutions-for-mental-health/
