The Cabbage Patch Kids Panic of 1983

March 30, 2021

Cate and Lori revisit the great Cabbage Patch Kids panic of Christmas 1983 (but not before providing a dramatic reading of "The Legend of the Cabbage Patch Kids" for your listening pleasure).

The besties also get real about the pressures of "adoption" as 7 year olds, sex-ed via the cabbage patch, and just saying no to crazy capitalism on principle.
