This Amelnykan Life Episode 5: Funny Girly Brains

Please don’t eat cat poo. In this first episode since the historic event known as Furry Ladies Night, we bid a tearful farewell to Guy Boucher’s System™, talk about sexist biases in sports hiring, and give a crash course on what not to say when sliding into a lady’s DMs.

Our music this week is Cotton Candy Skies by Neha Sin. Find her at and at
