A breakfast sandwich from the bagel shop down the street, a tall bloody mary at a trendy brunch spot, or simply a large ice water — anything will do. But most importantly, thank yourself for the ten minutes you took to look inward — no matter how hungover you may be.

The history behind The Sunday Scaries Podcast as it exists today.
