In this Episode:

Zhu Yi was unable to be in her home country when her grandmother died, but first she had to find out about it after the fact. Zhu talks about how her eccentric family has influenced her, inspired her, and like many families sometimes had the cops called on them.

Then Kerry joins The Bartender for the first ever “Tell The Bartender Theater” segment where they do a dramatic reading of a series of unflattering text messages about Kerry, accidentally sent to Kerry, from a (now former) friend of Kerry.

ALSO listener shout outs, and check out friend of the show‘s new podcast Grownups Are Talking!
