Fangirl Happy Hour, Episode #14 – “ALL the Recommendations!”

This week on Fangirl Happy Hour, Renay and Ana discuss their favorite media of 2015’s second quarter, media they’re looking forward to in the rest of 2015, and name their top favorites of the year so far. Pop the cap on your favorite pen, prep a notebook, and strap in for the rec fest.

Note: This episode is later than usual because Renay’s oven exploded. Did you know heating coils can produce rainbow firesparks?
