Every (Manic) Monday, your two beautiful hosts, Marla and Sophie, take on an “extreme” weekly challenge that will allegedly improve our quality of life, or at the very least, make some interesting stories. Listen in weekly to hear about the trials and tribulations of balancing these challenges with college living!

Episode 9: Letters From Quarantine
In this slightly sloppy quarantine episode, JAMM welcomes back Nicole! Your three hosts discuss hot yoga, jogging with dogs, and their salacious high school dance stories. Stay home and stay safe! This episode was recorded before the murder of George Floyd so we wanted to express our support for the Black Lives Matter movement in the bio of today's episode. Simply put, we believe in the undeniable importance of black lives and are educating ourselves about and fighting the systemic racism that plagues America today.  Please donate to some of these exceptional organizations who are fighting tirelessly against injustice. Please note that these are just a small number of organizations that need our support and we encourage you to donate to local organizations as well.  Black Lives Matter, Marsha P. Johnson Institute, National Bail Out, American Civil Liberties Union, Fair Fight, NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund  **Please forgive any background noise!
