Chris Kornelis

Biz and Theresa talk about the things we do for our kids that we'd otherwise never do. Whether you're an introvert spending Saturday socializing at a playdate, you're someone with a balloon phobia blowing up balloons for your kid's party because she HAD to have balloons, or you're the least crafty person on earth but you wake up one morning in the middle of Michael's with your five-year-old and a cart full of pinata-making materials -- we've all pushed ourselves to do things for the sake of our kids. Do we gain from these experiences or are we losing ourselves in this process? Plus, Biz gets body-technical, Theresa ups her fashion game, and we talk to the delightful Chris Kornelis about his truly very cool new book, Rocking Fatherhood: The Dad-to-Be’s Guide to Staying Cool.

Tamara Hew-Butler

You've heard the phrase plenty of times in your life: "Drink more water!" But our guest on this week's podcast dispels that myth.

Professor Tamara Hew-Butler, who appears on the Adam Ruins Football episode of the TV show, studies how too much water while exercising can actually be dangerous. Her research at Oakland University specifically focuses on excess water and hyponatremia, a potentially fatal condition when your body holds too much water.

Adam and Tamara discuss the myth of drinking eight glasses of water a day, Adam's lessons from his very long, first marathon, and Tamara's hilariously unorthodox lab experiments.
