729: American Gladiators, Shark Attacks, & Nude Bowling


Show Notes

We wonder how future is doing in Croatia, and we hear what Sarah has to say to her future self. We discuss the American Gladiator documentary and all the wild ways it is EXACTLY like the Challenge. Hear why the creators of American Gladiators share the same drama and documentary dichotomy as the Challenge, and why the injuries of the participants are seen as just collateral damage for the “honor” of being on the show. We lament the ways our present self always screws our future self and how humans aren’t as evolved and sophisticated as we like to imagine. We discuss nude bowling and theorize why the women are allowed to wear bottoms and we discuss whether a nude model might have motives for his profession that have nothing to do with kinkiness. We hear the history of sharks before and after Jaws, and hear why the movie had a negative impact on the animal kingdom.
