We Couldn't Help But Wonder - A Journey Through Sex and the City

Mike Jensen has seen the Sex and the City series many times. Elise Castle has never seen a single episode.

Join us as Mike watches for the (insert embarrassing number here) time and Elise is watching for the very first. We will discuss how the series holds up almost 20 years later, our own experiences living in NYC, and the debate over too much cranberry juice in the Cosmopolitan.
