Vivian vs Vivian (Different Actors, Same Role)

Artisanal Cottage Cheese (Second Movies)

For this week’s episode, my good friend Taylor Owens comes aboard as we discuss our favorite “second movies.”  These could be standalone sequels or installments in a larger franchise, but either way, we found quite a few.  Fair warning, things get pretty silly pretty quickly. To pair with our conversation, we drink Yardstick Cabernet, by…
