Moment of Squee

In today's episode, the girls squee about:
  • The Big Wow Convention that was held at the San Jose Convention Center May 18-19th. Espana and Jade give a post con report, as well as record an "after-hours" con report while slightly inebriated.
  • The upcoming 2016 Silicon Valley Comic Con!
  • The newly released Star Wars trailer. Sandy has a squee fit over it.
  • Sandy is loving the new Daredevil series.
