Original Article: I Can Taste the Gravy™ ft. The Vagibonds Podcast
Say Hi to The Vagibonds
Katee Verhoef and Corbin Weaver, from the new show The Vagibonds Podcast are in the studio to talk about their work discussing feminism through the OB/GYN student lens, as well as how they never introduce their co-host who just happens to be familiar to the SCP audience.
