Episode 22: M.I.A

Updated: Jun 28

Mia Zapata and her band, The Gits, were on the cusp of making it big in the music industry when in a blink of an eye, the dreams, the music, and Mia were gone. Alisha tells Emily the story of Mia Zapata; her life, her music and her horrendous murder. Later, they are joined by Zoe and Stefanie of Home Alive to discuss the non-profit they created out of necessity and what you can do to protect yourself. And, of course, some palate cleansing bloopers.
