I also share some personal information in this episode without a lot of context, but I will be talking more about it in a future episode.

It's the first ever Underestimated Special Edition! This week, my best friend Mary and I get to interview FRANGELA! I have been listening to Frangela for over a decade, and I love them. You'll hear me fan-girling pretty hard, but more importantly, you'll hear Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton, the essential best friend comedy duo, talk about their friendship, their career, and of course, they are hilarious.  Get. In. To. It. Also, studio dog Agatha sighs audibly in annoyance. Enjoy.
