795: Lunar Lunacy, Influencer Inmate, & Evolution Ear


Show Notes

We discuss Ruby Franke, a parenting influencer who was convicted of child abuse, which is a reminder to keep in mind that influencers aren’t always what they seem. We learn why the recent moon landing didn’t go as planned, and despite our complete lack of understanding about aeronautics, physics, and rocket science, we think we could’ve done better. We hear about recent changes to sports uniforms that have fans questioning the quality, and women in sports would like you to stop making them wear white pants fortheloveofgod. Sarah was watching a post-mortem on YouTube and learned how bodies are handled in these scenarios, why we’re all doomed to get black lung, and the reason people think hair and nails keep growing after death. Plus, we talk to Mindy Rickles, daughter of comedy LEGEND Don Rickles, about his incredible talent, how he reminds us to laugh at ourselves, and how he wanted to make sure he wasn’t forgotten.
