Twilight ft. Megan and Liz

| S:2 E:7

Close your eyes and imagine: it’s November 2009. You’re standing in a suburban movie theatre with “Team Edward” emblazoned across your chest. You were recently acknowledged by both Oprah AND Taylor Swift on national television. Life is good. The life you’re imagining is that of Megan & Liz, early-YouTube sensations turned indie musicians, who join us this week to unpack their favorite franchise, Twilight.
