My Thoughts: Lots of political talk. A bit of meandering to talk about movies and the moon landing. Abby seems like she’s always waiting to bring up something she wants to talk about rather than listening and letting the conversation flow. The last 30+ minutes is about Israel and Palestine. This was a chore to get through. I tuned out during the last 15+ minutes, to be honest.
