EP 16: The Patriarchy is Very Withholding

Ann and Leslie — friends that somehow fit every category.

This week we dive into female friendships on screen. But first we update you on what we watched, Avery has a random one for ya and Rosey is still apathetically watching How I Met Your Father. Then Rosey brings us through the history (spoiler alert: the patriarchy sucks) and then she and Avery share their friendship picks for a few categories: Odd Couple, Unexpected, BFFLs, Ride or Die, and Frenemies.
