771: Vegemite, Japanese Baby Names, & Mother God


Show Notes

Susie’s annoyed about all the vacations Sarah takes, and Sarah is sorry not sorry. (Susie is just jealous.) We don’t really understand Susie’s new/old obsession with Australia, but now we’re having to try vegemite for funsies, and it is truly a wild experience. We learn why Susie thinks she’s developing psychic abilities. We discuss the Love Has Won documentary about the cult of the same name that is run by a former McDonald’s manager turned spiritual guru who goes by the name Mother God and who has a real taste for the booze. And we learn which dead celebrities she channels (Sarah guesses one right!). We hear about the Luna Park amusement park fire that killed several children, and how an artist and a filmmaker found out what really happened decades later. Plus, we interview Alyssa Ages, author of Secrets of Giants: A Journey to Uncover the True Healing of Strength about the bodybuilding and Strongman competitions, healing from a miscarriage, and why strength training is not just a men’s game.
