Show notes:

Carrie Jade Williams has had a lot of tough breaks, but perhaps none tougher than the time a French family sued her for being disabled, demanding, as recompense for the discomfort of having slept under her roof, an utterly unreasonable number of weighted blankets. This is definitely a real lawsuit that actually happened, but if it wasn’t, wouldn’t that raise certain questions about Williams? And might those questions lead some interesting places? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.
