In the final episode of Yeah No Yeah, Molly and Katie explore death as they celebrate the life of their 5-year-old podcast. They talk Zoom funerals, the experience of dying, embalming, and the funeral industry. Then the film turns grainy and unfocused as a montage of the girls recording in apartments in New York and Texas plays. They've screamed at 5 and 1-star reviews alike, fought with strangers on Twitter, and made friends on Patreon and Instagram. Yes, it had been a wild ride for the girls, but all good things must come to an end. Better to go out on a high note than wither away slowly and run out of ideas. Good night and see you on the other side!
