Penelope talks The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, a historical fashion icon.

Pennie catches up with Mikey over the brassiere, after Miss Crabb started stocking la fille d'O, a somewhat groundbreaking range of lingere that caught Pennie's eye, she decided it was time to recap and educate the listeners and Mike on the history of the bra.
