733: Competitive Eating, The Dress, & Soul Boom!


Show Notes

Sarah is home from her Croatian vacation, and she’s back in the Brain Candy saddle. We talk about how her summer is shaping up much better than Susie’s, and we’re wondering if her “year of adventure” is cursed. We hear her latest sports doc commentary on competitive eating, and why her sister couldn’t keep watching it, but it made Susie emotional. We debate whether Vanna White deserved a pay increase in the last two decades, and why she apparently has the world’s worst agent. We talk about The Dress that went viral years ago for dividing the world about what color it was: blue and black or white and gold. We find out some interesting research that determined the types of people who thought it was dark vs. light, and why their lifestyle informed how they saw it. Plus, we are aghast at the wild twist the Dress took recently with the groom turning out to be a complete psycho. We also hear some Old Gossip about Bruce Lee that we did not see coming. Plus, Susie interviewed Rainn Wilson about his wonderful book, Soul Boom: Why We Need a Spiritual Revolution, and why spirituality is so important for The Office actor and the rest of us too! (Note: This interview was conducted before the SAG AFTRA strike.)
