800: Feats of Strength, Hotel Takeover, & Time Travel


Show Notes

Susie watched the Nyad documentary and was inspired, but also was wondering, what makes her different from our friend in the hamster wheel who tried to cross the ocean. Not much. We discuss the woman who completed the 200 mile ultramarathon and described the mental trick she uses to do it called the “pain cave.” Are these people self-centered or amazing athletes (or both??). We learn about the man who checked into a Manhattan hotel and never left and then somehow got ownership of the entire building. He is part genius, part madman, and we kind of love it. Kim Kardashian is in hot water over a knockoff artist’s table she bought, and we’re on team table. We talk about the surprising statistics we’re learning thanks to DNA testing about the prevalence of family abuse, the pregnancies that result from it, and the ways the government is keeping adoptee’s identities’s secret. Plus, we hear about two professors from the early 20th century who claim they fell through a wrinkle in time and transported to another era, and why we think they’re either full of baloney or actual time travelers, but we love them either way.
