789: Optimism, Pigeon Spy, & Napping on the Job


Show Notes

Remember when we were optimistic? Well, we do, so Sarah wanted to find out what makes some people optimistic. Susie thinks she’s a realist, but that might be code for “pessimistic.” But Susie and Sarah have a crazy role reversal today, and we’re wondering if Sarah is becoming less emotive in her menopausal era. We learn why some countries are passing laws to help people get out of work. Susie is wound up about people who become complacent or apathetic about the world and their role in it. We are furious about an influencer who faked her own death and acted like it was for a good cause. The US captured a pigeon it thought was a Chinese spy, but it turned out to be a wrongful conviction. We debate what foods would be good to eat in the shower and we learn about a pastor who ran a crypto scam at church.
