This week on the Queencast, half of the cast is too sick to record a new episode! So instead we break the emergency glass on an episode that we recorded waaaay back in Olden Times (about three weeks ago when Alex was still in Mexico). In this episode, we try to get to the bottom of cryptocurrency. What is it? Can you buy stuff with it? Is it even real? Spoiler: We don't really know, and we don't really come to any conclusions one way or the other. But one thing we can say for sure is that the best investment of all is love. And if you came for the food talk, don't worry...we get to that. And that's when Debra drops the most shocking bombshell of all: She doesn't like pizza that much.

Whether that's good or bad is up to you, but there's no denying that you'll be hungry when all is said and done.

And though perhaps not everything is for you, you can comfort in knowing that the Queencast always will always provide you with the quality of content you deserve.
Here's the video about using words that Michael talked about in the episode, and the video is of Ta-Nehisi Coates, not Common. Michael would like to apologize for not remembering who was actually in the video. https://youtu.be/QO15S3WC9pg
