[We're taking turns picking out some favorite episodes to share with you on weeks when vacations disrupt our usual chattiness. Terri raided our archives for today's full episode (from August 11, 2017) and the speed rounds you'll hear on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Tomorrow, though, you can listen to a brand new Round 2.]
00:59 Back to School: Nicole's daughter headed back to school, which somehow led us to reminisce about Gym Classes of Our Past.
08:00 All the Drama, None of the Fame and Fortune: Terri sometimes feels her life is a bad detective show. Catherine is stuck in a not-that-funny sitcom, and Nicole's family drama is exhaustingly dramatic. What TV show is your family inadvertently starring in?
20:00 Friday Speed Round: Summer Reading: This question about what our kids are reading this summer was mostly a confession of what they're not reading.
30:45 Roundabout Roundup: Terri shouted out Chase Bank's anti-fraud efforts, Catherine is stuck on these achievement stickers for freelancers, and Nicole swooned over Rolling Stone's Canadian cover boy.
37:22 Shameless Self-Promotion: Quick Fixes for Bee Stings, Bug Bites, Sunburns, and Other Summer Woes; 7 Signs Your Child Is in an Inclusive Class; podcast quote graphics on Facebook.
