If you had to get a tattoo right now, what would it be?
BA: My guinea pig Frankie or this drawing of a girl doing a back float in a pool that I’ve been eyeing.
Talk about the best fan interaction you've ever had.
BA: I love when people make a callback to something specific we’ve said on the podcast or something I’ve shared on TikTok/Instagram. I met one girl who had so many questions about my knitting, and I could have talked to her forever.
If you could anonymously start a rumor about yourself, what would it be?
BA: I was a child actress.
Tell us about the first concert you ever attended.
