622: Future Illusions, Political Brain, & Inspirational Music


Show Notes

[Note: episode includes discussion on suicide] Sarah went “out out” and got “drunk drunk,” so we get to hear about that. She also found out she loves dad jokes, which is only surprising to her. The rest of us have known that for a long time. Susie watched a documentary about Brian Wilson, and she came *thisclose* to crying on the show for maybe the first time? We learn how social media keeps you in the past and optical illusions make your brain go to the future. We discuss The Dress that made everyone on the internet lose their minds. Susie describes a documentary about suicide, and we debate what we would say to talk someone out of taking their own life. Plus, we learn why your brain requires 17 seconds to absorb an idea.
