813: Fears for Tears, Mona Lisa’s Eyes, & Dementia Identity


Show Notes

Three cheers for lesbian weddings, and fingers crossed Sarah gets to have one someday. The Louvre is moving the Mona Lisa to the basement and now we want to know what the fuss is about her anyway. We debate whether Taylor Swift should use a private jet to fly or if she should fly commercial like the rest of us. Sarah wonders what the future of concerts is, and whether virtual reality could provide the same transcendence that in person events do. We learn what effect women’s tears have on men and Susie successfully gets Sarah to cry about the movie Steel Magnolias. Susie describes a Pulitzer prize-winning article about dementia and the questions it raises about decision-making, identity, and autonomy for people who have it and their families. Plus, we try to figure out why urinary tract infections are so much worse for older folks.
