687: Sarah’s Marriage Proposal, Divorce Debate, & Buried Alive


Show Notes

Happy Valentine’s Day to all who celebrate–and we hope you do because love is the most important thing in the world! And to get in the spirit, Susie is trying to convince Sarah to propose to Eli. Hear what she has to say about that idea, and her answer may suprise you. We discuss a woman who got divorced, but chose to keep her ex-husband’s name, and some people are worked up about it. And we consider why the last name debate is so fraught and complicated. We learn about a study where men had to identify parts of a woman’s anatomy (including a part that doesn’t even exist), and they were very confident and very wrong. Susie explains why she still struggles with the purity culture mindset she grew up in, and how it informs her views on sexuality, women, and modesty. We discuss two examples of people who were wrongly declared dead, and how Susie’s fears of being buried alive have been triggered.
