756: Powerball, Yummy Mummies, & Golden Bachelor


Show Notes

After encouraging Sarah to avoid playing the lottery, Susie became a hypocrite by going all in on the Powerball frenzy sweeping the nation. But instead of admitting her lack of morality, Susie persuades Sarah to join the fun. And we make big plans for our winnings. Sarah reveals why until fairly recently, people were grinding up mummies and using them to make artwork and some people even ate them because of a misinterpretation of an ancient text. Oops! We discuss why TikTok trends are often based on faulty science, misrepresentations of studies, and plain old lies. We hear the origins of Rock, Paper, Scissors, and it was surprisingly not born out of boredom. Sarah watched the Golden Bachelor, and despite her ten seasons of reality tv experience, she is outraged that the show is somewhat staged and highly produced. Will her new favorite widower find love? Not if producers keep setting unreachable romantic standards, she says! We discuss the bedbugs in Paris and why it’s not helping their hygiene reputation. Plus, Susie is mad that Sarah keeps secrets from her about her social life.
