Wow! This episode is really late because Katie went out of town over the weekend and completely forgot to finish posting it for you. Sorry about that. We are going to get right to it so you don’t have to wait a single second longer than is necessary. This week The Gal’s talk about rust and how super effing cool it is! It took a while to convince Loni that she was not going to get lock jaw from touching rusty items but eventually she decided it was safe enough.
