This is a dork expedition to Elliza McGrand’s house where we met with some of her friends: Trina, Jill and Stacy. It might be the girliest dork forest ever! We talked Perfume. Because of the guerilla nature of the expedition the audio is out there. There is some talking over each other and it’s like being at a meth convention. The discussion of science and ounces is intense and very dorky and addictive. I want, now, to smell better. It is great. Enjoy.
