14. Jane Goodall and a Marshmallow. [Vivian Kotila.]

Vivian Kotila is short, round, lives in Toronto, and loves her trash. She’s basically a raccoon that's not as proficient at opening jars. Her two main vices are decaf coffee with too much cream and antique cookbooks. She owns a fighting fish named Cato the Elder.

Vivian and Michael discuss discovering your identity, the joy of bad movies, dealing with grief, what makes humanity redeemable, and the fun side of nuclear holocaust.
