We chat about why saying ‘hey guys’ is problematic, one of the most frustrating aspects of eating out as a vegan, our visit to the Museum of London, and our spontaneous bougie date.

I think the word “guys” has become a unisex word, which just means “everyone”. It seems like equality to me. I’d rather be refered to as “guys” than “girls” or “ladies.” :-D
true! i suppose it’s a matter of perspective
I like your podcast :-D
thanks so much for listening!!
I think you’re right too, some people probably don’t want to be called “guys” so it’s a good idea to just say “everyone” instead. :-D
haha yeah! im trying harder now to avoid saying it.
Perhaps you don’t need to say anything, you could just say “Hello” and begin talking. :-)
