592: Kindergarten Tattoos, Armpit Fetish, & American Accents


Show Notes

Today we hear about a teacher who was fired from his kindergarten teaching job because he covered his face and tongue in tattoos. A Brainiac told us about a nightclub in NYC hosting “pheromone parties” where people sniff each other’s armpits and find body odors that make them hot and bothered. We learn whether there is a “General American” accent that newscasters use or whether we’ve been lying to ourselves. Plus, we find out why a lot of our memories are false, why this happens, and how even people with “super memories” who can remember every detail of their lives have false memories. And we interview Danielle Friedman about her book, Let’s Get Physical which describes the history of women’s fitness, and it is bonkers!
