This week, Cher and James discuss the passing of American author Harper Lee, and her lasting impression on them. They also dig deep into the recent controversy of both Kendrick Lamar and Beyoncé's recent performances. In Open Call, Cher gives a shout out to a recent podcast episode, and James gives some love to a hygiene habit.
