Episode 11 of Finding Felicity is titled Gimme An 'O! (Or, Nothing Sexier Than a Planner), and this week we talk about Felicity approaching her first sexual experience in the most focused and goal-oriented way possible, Julie and Ben getting closer, and the fact that they really need to start writing Elena better on this show. P.S.: Noel is still trash.
This week, Teresa breaks the format a little by having another Felicity newbie as a guest co-host! Theater director, producer and writer Kate Motzenbacker started watching the show along with Finding Felicity! Now, she's bringing her experience as a sex educator to the podcast, and the two talk about Felicity and Noel, their own "first times," and the fact that "virginity" is a useless (and harmful) construct.
