Road trip! Why is our sound quality so lousy this week? It’s because we took the show to our local fast food emporium to enjoy some frozen treats. We talk Frostys, Blizzards, and other fast-food classics. Plus, a sneak preview of Molly’s forthcoming hard-hitting investigative book. spilledmilkpodcast.com
