Kimchi slap! Judy and Teresa are pretty sure they would be the best facilitators after watching “Dramaworld", a Viki webseries starring Liv Hewson, Sean Dulake and Justin Chon. It's also currently available on Netflix! As annoying and inept as Claire (Liv Hewson) was as a facilitator, Judy appreciated the actress being 100% committed to this bo ...…

We love talking to each other, so we digress a lot. This is one of the many segments Paroma edited out of our last Long Yak. We talk about living with our families, which Jane Austen heroine we identify with (and Anisa hates), and how relevant Austen's fiction still is in modern-day Pakistan.
