Sample transcript:

Maura: So Harp. How’s it going? What did you get up to this weekend now that the nice weather has finally rolled around?

Harp: I had a great weekend. One of my friends, it was her birthday, so I took her a Dairy Queen ice cream cake.

Maura: My mouth is watering just hearing about it.

Harp: They’re just such amazing cakes. They’re so delicious with their chocolate, and then their cookie layer, and then the fudge layer, and then the vanilla. Ah. It’s just deliciousness.

Maura: I love ice cream season.

Harp: I know. I just love Dairy Queen ice cream cakes. They’re amazing.

Maura: You know, it’s been quite a while since I’ve had one, but I think I wanna buy one now, Harp.

Harp: I think you should buy one for the next friend’s birthday. ’Cause you know, our birthdays are in October, so I always feel kind of bad having it at my birthday party ’cause it’s getting cold and an ice cream cake is cold, but if I can find a Dairy Queen store that’s open, I definitely buy myself an ice cream cake for my birthday.

Maura: Yup. Just gotta turn up the heat inside.

Harp: Exactly.

Maura: OK. Let’s get to today’s episode now.

Harp: All right. So, today’s episode is a Chatterbox episode, and that’s where we chat. We talk about cultural topics, we interview people, we chat.

Maura: Yes. And today, we’re doing one that I’m especially excited about. We’re doing an episode about cutting a rug.

Harp: Yes. We’re doing an episode all about dancing.

Maura: That’s right. An episode about dancing.

Harp: And we’re gonna break it down. We’re gonna talk about dancing when you’re a child and when you’re young.

Maura: And then we’re gonna talk about when you get a little bit older and when you’re in high school. So, dancing when you’re a teenager.
