    I LOVE that Sarah Haskins series! And those TAL segements are some of my favorites as well, also very partial to the first act of “Fear of Sleep” and the second act of “Send a Message-” the latter of which I listened to on headphones while at the laundromat and looked like a crazy person laughing my ass off while pairing socks.
