This is where the show really picks up, and our analysis gets a lot heavier. Daria and Jane do some deep dives on everything from phrases Minnesotans don't say to why someone would be driving to Duluth on backroads.

Daria and Jane invite Bill and Charpie from the "Fargo Talks Fargo" podcast to recap season one, discuss similarities and differences between Minnesotans and North Dakotans, and mostly get off-topic. Midwestern tropes galore.
