4773

In this extra special episode you are FINALLY introduced to Jess and Rach's partners - Joe (Jess's husband), and Josh (Rach's slam piece). The couples answer some DM's together, as well as shoot a lot of shit on the McAleese's couch. In Episode 14 we get into Enneagrams - a  personality test that pretty much explains everything about why we are the way we are. Do you want to get to know yourself or your partner better? Take the test and then listen to this episode (or listen to the episode first, we're not the boss of you). Find out who is the impulsive one, who are the anxious ones, and who is the bossy one...  but if you've been listening for a while you probably already know the answers! We hope you enjoy this episode and being introduced to some of our favorite humans on earth. We had so much fun recording this episode - stay tuned for next week's Q&A with the boys!
