This week we’re bringing you an episode of one of our favorite podcasts, Gee Thanks, Just Bought It, hosted by our friend (and recent guest of OILT), Caroline Moss. You already know Caroline from episode 31 of OILT but now you’ll get to know her beyond her Real Housewives scholarship. In this episode, Caroline asks us about great gifts we’ve given this year and, as a result, we go deep talking about road safety and fake foods.
