Holy Bajeebus! Aaron and Olivia are both here at the same time for once!

News of the Weird w/Eugene:

Ask Aaron and Olivia – There seem to be so many different ways to romanize Korean. Why can’t the Koreans just choose one?

On the pulse w/Rob – Well actually, we were going to talk about the stresses of student life, butinstead we ended talking about our guest’s bad blind dating experiences. GASP!

ALSO! There’s a chance to score a blind date with her yourself! If you are younger than 26, have good hygene, and are in the market for a hot babe, then listen to find out how YOU could win a blind date!
