How C*m

Jun 1, 2020

Remy is joined by her boyfriend comedian Ben DeMarco to interview another comedy couple; Caitlin Peluffo and Steve Rogers. We discuss our recent blowout fights, which one of us lies about his dick-size, who said 'I love you' first, and everyone's horrendous first impressions of each other.

Trigger Warning: In our introduction this week we discuss police brutality, how important the Black Lives Matter movement is, and what to wear/bring to a protest. We also list several charities to donate to, which are listed below our partners.
