598: Heimlich Hero, Dying for Wine, & Sour Theory


Show Notes

Today we hear about a crazy story involving Susie’s husband Adam, where she had to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on him. We learn about hospitals in France that are giving dying patients high-end wine during their last days, and why we aren’t able to do the same here. We discuss the evolution of NERF guns and how historic events have influenced the way people use these toys. Susie talks about purity culture in the 80s and 90s and why Britney Spears continues to be the sacrificial lamb for our cultural obsession with “good girls.” We discuss a new hotline where you can call and get a pep talk from a Kindergartener. And it’s totally adorable. We debate why humans are able to taste sour, as scientists are stumped about the evolutionary purpose of it. But fear not! Sarah’s got a theory, and Susie thinks she’s onto something.
