This is Halloween! Special

Screen Shot 2017-10-11 at 11.13.25 AM.png

In this episode, Allie and Laura deep dive into one of their favorite holidays of the year: Halloween. They discuss some controversial feelings about #psl season, list their favorite costumes from their past, reveal plans for their present costumes, and deliver wishes to the Ghost of Halloween Future.

The girls explain why they find scary movies problematic, but how they still find it appropriate to decorate their houses with spooky paraphernalia.

The conversation turns serious when Allie and Laura discuss the cultural implications of a holiday like Halloween, and the disassociation that needs to happen in order to avoid cognitive dissonance. As we become more spiritually #woke, there’s a need to evaluate the decorations we put up in our houses and the imagery we allow minds to consume.  Though there is no judgment towards anyone, the girls grapple with these changes in their own mindsets.

Do we believe in ghosts? Do we believe in aliens?  Tune into the pod to find out answers to these questions and more.
