Welcome back to the Happy Hour!

This week has been a doozy, to say the least – it feels like it will never end! On today’s episode, hosts Malakai and shaylyn are joined by Xpress Social Media Editor Olivia Wynkoop to talk about which California proposition results made us happy and which show us the way forward. 

Plus, a special cocktail for someone who reviewed the podcast on Apple Podcasts. Rate and review if you want a tailor-made cocktail too! Listen anywhere you get your podcasts, and find us on Instagram @thhpodcast and on Twitter @happyhournews. Also, the recipe for this week’s tailor-made cocktail can be found here.

Thank you to Arman Billimoria for our theme music. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite beverage and enjoy this election week episode. The Happy Hour Podcast is produced in collaboration with Golden Gate Xpress Newspaper and Xpress Magazine at SF State.
