754: Misphonia, Taylor Swift’s NFL, & Platonic Proposals


Show Notes

Sarah thinks something fishy is happening with British Bakeoff, and she needs answers. Sarah is so enamored with Taylor Swift’s ability to rile up the football boys that she is considering becoming a Swiftie or AT LEAST unmuting her on spotify. This is big news. We were happy for the seal who escaped from his enclosure at a New York zoo. Or was it a sea lion? And we found out the difference between a seal and a sea lion (and what the heck is the deal with walruses?) while we were at it. We discuss the inmate who recently escaped from a Pennsylvania prison, and Susie seriously freaks Sarah out when she finds out what he did when he broke into someone’s house. It’s some horror movie sh*t. Susie also explains why the police and SWAT team members who caught him were a little too proud of themselves and really the credit should go to someone else altogether. We hear what the diamond industry is cooking up to try to sell more diamonds now that fewer people are getting married, but we think their idea is a dud. Susie thinks Gen Z might go for it and gets all judge-y about it, but Sarah reminds her of all the dumb things our generations have done. We debate an article by David Brooks which encouraged people to focus on marriage rather than their careers, and Susie explains why he’s seen as a conservative in sheep’s clothing. Susie shares a story about a recent night out that almost turned into another addition to her year of bad luck, but this story is a real BCP emotional roller coaster.
