It's a brave new world and we don't know what to make of it. Today we talk about the birth of the theybie movement. Oh, and asbestos and why England cares enough about Trump to make a balloon in protest. So yeah, we're all over the place. Enjoy!
We could tell you what we talk about on this episode, but where's the fun in that? How about instead you listen and tell us what we talked about!
We hit a milestone with this episode - the big 5-0! Unfortunately, neither of us thought about this ahead of time and therefore didn't plan anything special. Or plan anything at all. We will make it up to you. In the meantime, enjoy some banter about first dates, shades of grey, cent's, etc.
Today's episode is no fun people. We talk political correctness overkill, linguistics, why girls aren't good at math, and something both of us have struggled with, depression. Hey... wait... where are you trying to go sad legs?
What isn't this episode about? From the death of the number 2 pencil, to sleeping too much versus too little, to the TV shows Valentina is watching and Patti may or may not know about, we cover a lot of ground. The worst part about the episode? We forgot to turn the fan off.
Hey everyone! Did you know that prisons are a for-profit business? At least some of them are, particularly the ones used for immigration detention. It's probably a total coincidence that the biggest players in the "corrections industry" both dontated $250k to Trump's inauguration celebration, after which his administration both reversed Obama's plan to reduce the number of private prisons and excelerated immigration prosecutions. Right? It's gotta be a coincidence. There are A LOT of those that somehow benefit a small number of people if you look into it a little. But it's gotta be just a coincidence...
Well, break is over and we're back! Turns out the world hasn't changed for the better over the last few weeks so we won't be running out of topics any time soon. But we don't have one for this episode. Topic, that is. It's just us, catching up, talking geography, dying squirrels, the dramatic stylings of professional soccer players, and things you can do with dead bodies. So what we're saying is, maybe don't start with this episode if you've never listened before. Go listen to Confederacy of Dunce Caps and come back to this one later. Okay, enjoy!
Nope. Uh uh. This is just wrong. Episode 45 is about the all-too-prevelant phenomenon of child marriage. And while it does on occasion happen with boys, it is much more common for young girls to be married off to, you guessed it, older men. From the Middle East and Africa to Guatamala and New Jersey (yep, you read that right), little girls are becoming wives and mothers much to young, and most often not by their own choice.
On this episode we take some time out for ourselves with a little therapy session. OK, so we got carried away and forgot about the topic. Instead, we talk taking responsibility for our bad decisions, overcoming traumatic situations, and the effects of living in a world full of trigger warnings.
