793: Rebecca Syndrome, Chiweenie, & Kangaroo Time


Show Notes

People are suing dating apps for trapping them in a loop of doom dating instead of helping them find love. Sarah describes a newly viral phrase called Rebecca Syndrome that refers to retroactive jealousy towards your partner’s exes, and she is mad that people are stigmatizing and stereotyping with its use. We discuss the ways culture has been flattened by digital media and young people are reduced to cultural experiences that lack substance, and we consider what would change that. We hear the wild tale of Sarah’s beloved dog, Waffles (RIP), who is gone but not forgotten. We talk about the new NASA program that is recruiting people to live in a simulation of Mars for one year, why we wouldn’t want to participate, and consider whether this is a great use of resources.
