Episode 74: Pregnancy Tests in Bar Bathrooms Prevent Nothing

Week 5 from Quaranpod! Moji, Marie and Lizz gather round the Zoom and talk the latest covid abortion casualties, specifically in Alaska which has no access to oh, anything but salmon. You try floatplaning, then snow machining to get abortion… 

PLUS will Moji and Marie stump Lizz on 6 Degrees of Abortion? 

Listen up sleeper cellers, it’s a dandy- full of rage and hilarity- just how you want your abortion info!
