668: Brain Buckets, Doppelgänger DNA, & Lucy Laughter


Show Notes

Susie watched the Barney (as in the purple dinosaur) documentary and it was a shockingly sad story. We discuss the backlash towards the wholesome content and the effect it all had on its creator and her family. We discuss the science behind when you officially become an adult and the reasons why it’s not simply biology, but rather a combination of life experiences and brain development. Hear why music gives us the chills. Susie offers some “old gossip” about Lucy and Desi and their hit show, I Love Lucy, and the reason why Lucy might get too much credit. We learn about a collection of 10,000 human brains and the ethical questions about what we can do with them. Plus, we hear why everybody has a doppelganger, and you might want to find yours.
