648: House of Hammer, Reality TV Epiphany, & Memories


Show Notes

Susie wants to know what it is about alcohol that feels like a panacea. We discuss the bonkers new docu-series, House of Hammer, which documents the generational trauma, violence, and immorality of the Hammer dynasty. Sarah explains why Armie’s “BDSM” fetish is really a cover for a power kink, and what he really wants is complete control over women. She explains the 90-9-1 rule that describes the breakdown of how most people behave (and how the “1” always messes it up for the rest of us). Susie talks about sports documentaries she’s watched recently, and how one film about street basketball reminded her of what happens to people who go on The Challenge, and why it demonstrates how vulnerable people get exploited. Susie talks about a study that shows the way we change and shift our memories when they’re traumatic, embarrassing, old, or for other reasons, and Sarah’s mind is blown.
