A part two to episode 12, the gals welcome Dani back, armed with more chapters of her Gerard Way x OC x Frank Iero fanfic (written in 2004). Recorded for the first time in front of a live studio audience, KFY invites you to grab a drink, sit back, relax, and dream of Frank's hard hands as you listen to two hours of pure chaos... coming to you live from Dark Basement HQ.
