748: Brain Candy: The Musical, Ornamental Hermits, & the Good Wall


Show Notes

We didn’t intend on this episode becoming a musical version of Brain Candy, but, boy oh boy, did we have a song in our hearts today. We apologize in advance. We learn what “ornamental hermits” are and find out why people were using them to gain social status centuries ago. Susie explains why Paris Hilton would’ve loved an ornamental hermit. We hear why Sarah started loving Veggie Tales as an adult and Susie is singing about an astronomer/physicist. We laugh about the couple who bulldozed through the Great Wall of China, and wonder what exactly it is that they were trying to accomplish. We love a good shortcut, but this sounds ridiculous. Susie gets real confused about the 7 Wonders of the World because it turns out there are more than seven and some of them are natural, some of them are manmade, and some of them aren’t really that wondrous. Sarah explains why the rules have changed in New York and now there will be a lot of people who will be sharing AirBnBs with an extra roommate. Finally, we learn what “hot bedding” is, and it turns out it’s not as sexy as it sounds.
