674: Strange Names, Liver King, and The Year of Rest


Show Notes

Susie is psyched out of her mind about the Strange Names documentary that features people with unusual, disturbing, or celebrity names. It’s so good! We discuss some of the crazy names, why parents name their kids names that will get them bullied, and how a name can determine so much of your life. We also discuss why we mock certain names that certain cultures tend to use (like all the white lady influencers), and what’s behind our disdain. We talk about the Harry and Meghan docuseries and why even though Susie loves those two crazy kids, she’s a little sick of hearing about their love story (she’s just a crumudgeon, that’s all). We hear about the “liver king” who grew a huge social media following claiming that his caveman ways were his secret to his phsyique, but really it was, you know, drugs. Hear why Sarah is hoping for a restful 2023, she is not going to be optimistic, and she is learning to go with the flow of life. Finally, we debate the use of fat suits in movies, and whether a smaller actor should play a bigger character.
