Shmanners

You know, after a hard day of podcasting, I like to relax with an ice cold drink. Maybe a beer? Maybe a whiskey? But then I find myself wondering "Is this good shmanners?" This week's ep is all about ALCOHOL, specifically at parties! What are the rules of BYOB? What's the deal with punch? What if you don't drink? What the deal with BAC? Answers to all these questions and more can be found here! Enjoy, and don't forget to pass it around!

Minority Korner

We're back! In more ways than one. Nnekay and James are physically back in the same time zone, same space, and same park, that's right we're back in Dolores Park, will things get as crazy as last time? Nnekay explains the history of pigeons, and James tells his tales of cheep peep shows, and sexy fairs. In the issues korner Nnekay sheds light on other movements outside of #BlackLivesMatter, that's right there's other movements effecting change. James has a DNC news roundup! This year at the DNC we had a lot of 'firsts' as movements are having effects on our electorate and party system in more ways than you think. Also James calls out Bernie or Bust, which is big, because as you recall Minority Korner feels the burn! Quizlet Korner has a whole new set of rules as we talk about Matt Damon is everyone's savior, male body dysmorphia, and poisonous vagina. All on this weeks episode of Minority Korner!

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Courtney Wyckoff

Biz and Theresa demand to know why our kids don’t like some stuff that ALL OTHER kids seem to like. Not liking pizza or coloring books seems like breaking some sort of child law and it seems particularly criminal when the things they don’t like would make it easier for the parent if they just liked it! Plus Biz is at her breaking point and naming every person in a book or car on the road for her toddler isn’t helping, Theresa has an unfortunate wildlife adventure and Courtney Wyckoff of Momma Strong comes back to talk postpartum peeing and issue us a pelvic floor challenge!

Ross and Carrie Are Information: Dream Reality Cinema Edition

We wish we could tell you exactly what we do in this episode, but we're not even sure. It all starts with us finding a coupon for "dream therapy," a treatment where you sit in a recliner in Beverly Hills and are put into a half-sleep state for an hour so that you can get all the benefits of meditation and dreaming, while a guy (or gal) says vaguely scientific things in your ear. What benefits, you ask? We're not sure. And they don't seem sure, either. But here's one thing we know: it costs $80.

Professor Elizabeth Loftus is a pioneering and legendary cognitive psychologist who first appeared on the forensic science episode of Adam Ruins Everything.

Her ground-breaking work studies how memories can be changed and altered. She's specifically focused on the weaknesses of eyewitness testimony.

What makes Elizabeth's work even more interesting is that she's ventured beyond academia to understand human memory, testifying and consulting in over 250 legal cases.

Adam and Elizabeth discuss collective memory, repressed memory, and even some of Adam's own memories.
