Why have people throughout human history drawn penises everywhere? What compels (usually) dudes to mark dirty cars, classroom desks, and their sleeping friend’s forehead with penis art? Much to Kathleen’s delight, Bethany goes through examples of dick-scriptions, from ancient archeological finds to current day. Plus, she goes into the psychology behind why people draw them! (“Cuz them dicks ain’t gonna draw themselves, yo.” - Reddit) Then, Kathleen goes through some old wives’ tales and clears up the truth versus the fiction! Plus, Bethany goes off on tripod lamps, because how dare they? -------- Check out our merch! —> https://store.dftba.com/collections/an-acquired-taste-podcast  -------- Join our *NEW* Patreon family! —> https://www.patreon.com/acquiredtaste -------- Please support the companies that support us!

Kathleen just got a subscription to a science website so she’s about to melt your face with some blazing Butterfly Facts!

On this loosey-goosey bonus episode, Kathleen and Bethany discuss the $6,000(!!!) desk chair that several people are telling her to get. Plus, a listener just found some massive holes in her walls and wants to put something creepy inside before she covers them up.

Remember last week when Kathleen made a joke about sex escape rooms? Well, she did some research and is back to spill all the tea and whip all the subs (with their consent, of course) about sexy escape rooms and BDSM Dungeons! Then, Bethany goes through all of the stupidly expensive, bizarre, and just plain “funky” Valentine’s Day gifts you COULD have gotten your partner this year.

You know where the President lives, but how much do you know about where the Vice President lives? (Turns out, they don’t live in a carriage house behind the White House.) Bethany has some surprisingly interesting stories about Number One Observatory Circle, including the time that then-VP Joe Biden *maaaaaaybe* spilled the beans on a super-secret part of the house.

Listener “Cathryn” is craving female friendship, but she hates the things her current female friends like. Can she learn to like her current friends the way she learned to like this podcast? Bethany and Kathleen dig into the toxic “I’m not like other girls” mindset, and they confront some judgmental assumptions that may be keeping Cathryn from forging stronger female bonds.  ------ Check out our merch! —> https://store.dftba.com/collections/an-acquired-taste-podcast  ------ Please support the companies that support us!   ThirdLove - ThirdLove knows there’s a perfect bra for everyone!

It’s safe to say that more people than usual are having a hard time right now, and that makes it difficult to be productive. If you’re feeling this way, Bethany is right there with you! She’s opening up about her struggles and offers tips that have helped her get things done during the day (even if it’s just getting out of bed)! Then, Kathleen takes a break from yelling at construction workers out her window to share a slew of tooth-related crimes.

Kathleen is helping you eliminate all of those little daily stressors that pile up, and it only takes one question! What question is that? Listen to find out! Then, Bethany wants to give you a creepy unsolved case to ring the New Year in right, so she discusses a little-known incident where seven hikers went out but only one came back. Plus, Bethany introduces a new game inspired by her frugal grandmother called, “Well, they sure know what they want for that!” Play it with your coworkers as a team-building exercise! ----------- Check out our merch! —> https://store.dftba.com/collections/an-acquired-taste-podcast ----------- Some resources to learn more about why the “cat eye” trend is problematic: Teen Vogue: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.teenvogue.com/story/fox-eye-trend-cultural-appropriation-asian-features/amp CNN: https://www.cnn.com/style/article/fox-eye-trend-asian-cultural-appropriation-trnd/index.html Hello Giggles https://www.google.com/amp/s/hellogiggles.com/beauty/fox-eye-racist/%3Famp%3Dtrue (https://www.google.com/amp/s/hellogiggles.com/beauty/fox-eye-racist/?amp=true) ----------- Please support the companies that support us!

Bethany and Kathleen are cleansing their brains of all the things they've been thinking about lately while looking back on some of their favorite 2020 topics. Everything that has gone wrong lately is a fault of the full moon and everything that has gone well is because the sage ritual worked. Time to make up a pagan prayer, gather your bathing suits, strap in your haunted dolls, and banish New Year's resolutions for once and for all.

Remember January 2020? Remember when this was going to be “our year?” HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. We were all so young and naive then. Kathleen and Bethany are taking the next two weeks to look back at some of their favorite podcast moments from 2020 and earlier, including Kathleen’s New Year’s resolution to take it “one day at a time,” (a skillset she had no idea would come in handy in a few months), Bethany’s poignant message to her 15-year-old self that still rings true today, and that time Kathleen made Bethany listen to audio porn and Bethany’s shame exploded into more, smaller shames. (Some might call it a “Midwestern Shame Spiral.”) Drink up, Tastebuds.

Fun fact: Bethany’s first radio boss told her she had to stop talking about magician David Copperfield because she was “creeping out the listeners.” But she’s talking about him now!! Inspired by her new favorite TV show “Jonathan Creek,” Bethany goes behind-the-scenes with some of the biggest stage illusions of all time and tells you how they’re done! Then, Kathleen is looking forward to 2021 when *hopefully* everyone can travel safely again, and she has big plans!

The second installment of our 'What's Your Job' series features Em Schulz, one-half of the award-winning podcast “And That’s Why We Drink,” (and former prop creator for TV and film!), and Megan, a food scientist based in the Midwest. Before Em was sharing spooky ghost stories on their wildly successful pod, they worked at a prop warehouse in LA, creating props for shows like “New Girl,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” and “Stranger Things.” What does that job entail, and how did they get into it? (And is Thor’s hammer really that heavy?) Then, Megan teaches the class exactly what a food scientist is, what they do, and more importantly, what they DON’T do. Turns out, there’s a lot of misconceptions about the people who create the food we eat, and Megan is clearing them up!  -----------   Check out our merch! —> https://store.dftba.com/collections/an-acquired-taste-podcast    ----------- Listen to Em on their podcast, “And That’s Why We Drink!”  https://www.andthatswhywedrink.com/listen   ----------- Please support the companies that support us!  Amazon Music – Listen at home or wherever you are!

Bethany is finally airing out her grievances against a certain family of clean butt-obsessed animated bears. Is anyone else grossed out by the Charmin Bears?? Then, Kathleen is feeling unprepared for class today so she’s pulling out her handy dandy Cosmo magazine. Want some choice tips on how to flirt via text? You’re in the right spot!

Happy Thanksgiving! If you’re wondering how you’re going to navigate a massive meal this holiday season, don’t fret! Registered Dietitian Vanessa Rissetto is talking with Kathleen and Bethany about how to keep a healthy and sane attitude around food, why you shouldn’t starve yourself all day before the big Thanksgiving meal, and the most amazing mantra to make you realize how easy it can be to eat well for your body! Then, the show just devolves into chaos: there is singing, bad Turkey jokes, strange holiday gift ideas, Thanksgiving conversation starters, and the entire show must stop down for a bathroom emergency.
