772: Teen Slang, Women on Everest, & Chipotle Justice


Show Notes

We know Susie thinks wisdom teeth removal is a scam, but are nightguards too? Not according to Sarah–they just need a trim. We discuss the news that using cannabis for pain management is no better than a placebo. We talk about a new method for scientific testing that is saving a lot of rabbit lives, but is still angering animal rights activists. We consider whether animals know their “names” when they are our pets or whether the abstract idea of a personal name is a human-only concept. Sarah may have done the impossible and found a group of people climbing Mt. Everest that we’re ok with! A group of women is making the trek and, believe it or not, we’re on board. Apparently Interstellar did more than tell the greatest cinematic story ever told, it actually is turning a profit through corn production too, but Susie can’t confirm this information. And we hear about a woman who threw her food at a fast food worker, and why the judge sentencing her took a clever route in her punishment.
