Candi Presents...

shiny. crafty. gifty. delicious.

It's art and politics, science and pop culture! A new chat show filled with super opinions and [gasp] real facts!

Join Candi and Noodle as they try to make sense of the world, muse on the human condition, and spread a little love. And probably hardcore judge a few things. 

Warning: So much adult language.
