This week, hosts Mike and Sheila discuss Episode 3 of Season 2, “Alma Mater”. Afterwards, stick around for our exclusive interview with the inimitable, Keiko Agena (who plays Edrisa)!!  Keiko was beyond fantastic, spending a long time with us and really going behind the scenes on who Edrisa is, what it was like to spend the day in a green water pool, which Prodigy she’d want to quarantine with … and so much more!
