Episode 7: Gemini Twins - Sweet Valley High

You guys, Jessica finally gets a personality and its BROWN HAIR. And of course the pitch perfect 80s dream of becoming a model at the mall. Because representation is important, this week we welcome poet, sk8erboi, and straight white guy Tim Stafford to the pod to talk about influencer culture, branding yourself, frenemies, and basically how Sweet Valley is no Lyons, IL. And then for the first time, Wokefield’s resident astrologer Zane Biebelle breaks down how the sun, the moon, and the stars have influenced the Wakefield twins—of course those hoes be Geminis!—and how our own birth weeks determine whether or not we could be friends with them. Wokefield is written & hosted by Elizabeth Gomez & Adrienne Gunn. Produced and engineered by J.W. Basilo for Shame The Devil Media. ...

The Wakefield twins have arrived in London for their summer internships and next thing you know there’s a murder and <whoops!> Jessica’s DATING A WEREWOLF.

It’s our most vulnerable discussion yet--marriage, divorce, parenting, friendship, plus a special look back at our favorite moments this season. Written and hosted by Elizabeth Gomez and Adrienne Gunn.
