Susie gives a report on the Super Models documentary and the cultural moment that supermodels represented in the 80s and 90s, how they discuss aging, and why Susie is critical of younger models. It even inspired one of Susie’s famous hot takes where she criticizes a nepo baby who “can’t walk.” We learn about the woman who was hired to fix Airbnb’s party problem and programmed an algorithm to sniff out whether people are going to throw a party at the house. We discuss the recent study that found that patients of female surgeons have more favorable outcomes and we theorize why that might be. We debate why anyone would want a male OB-GYN, and how even TSA agents take liberties with their “authority.” Susie discusses a scholarly article on why French people were not into personal hygiene and how the stereotype about them is apparently true or at least was far into the 1900s. Sarah, however, is very defensive because she is a stinky woman and thinks Susie should give the French a break. We learn how men muscled women out of surfing, why the sport is changing slowly, and how Sarah had a secret surfing career.
