Wonder Twin Powers, Activate!

In today’s Quickie, the ladies of the XOXO After Darkcast reminisce about Saturday morning cartoons and share some of the grownup animated series they’re watching now. Kate tries (and fails) to explain Bojack Horseman to Lauren, and we get tossed out of the studio when talk turns to The Snorks.

Leveling Up in Love, feat. Elia Winters
