    "Shoutouts to Chris C for this one. I’ve binged this series up to episode 8, and it was captivating. The commentary from former secret agents and the story itself gave a unique and informative perspective on the life of spies. It was also a great reminder of how messed up the Nazis were and the extreme lengths people have gone to exact justice on them. I’m excited for the next episode! "

    "As someone who's worked for tips for 15 years - this hits it on the head. It's so backwards how we do it here and offers no protection or stability to employees. So should we do away with tipping? Would bartenders stop trying if we did? Would it matter to anyone but Karen?? Do tips CREATE the Karen situation?! Ahhh idk I THINK THEY DO"
