This week, Emily is joined by one of her oldest friends, Tanei Atagi Henry — a writer, non-profit director, mom, and wife in Provo, Utah. Emily and Tanei talk about their not-so-picturesque hometown, Tanei’s life in the Mormon church, and the Christmas Emily spent with Tanei’s family. And yes, they talk about the undergarments.
