thank you for doing this episode about lawns. I have often asked the question of why we invest so much in the care of lawns and they give us so little in return. I have often wondered what our country would look like if we had more home gardens versus lawns. Home gardens could be the piece of the puzzle to eradicate food insecurity, obesity and diabetes just to name a few debilitating diseases.Great episode and thank you

LOL at Scaramucci's position that with an increase in investment in ETFs, more financial advisers will lost their jobs at t he next market downturn. in fact, more of these resources would have already been re-allocated elsewhere and therefore there should be less job-losses in the finance industry.

Research shows that children that age learn best through play...not their ability to sit still and follow directions. Those skills just make it easier for the classroom teachers to do their jobs.

The episode complete ignored the biological factors. The reason men completed more rides and worked longer. Men are more competitive by nature and that works on every level. Now I'm stating this as an average. On an individual basis you'll find women equally or more competitive. The competitive nature of men drives them to work longer, harder, and in more dangerous environments.

Bradley Vaillan They know who butters their bread. That's why they have to sugar coat their explanations.

Wow! Mark Zuckerburg is a lousy interviewee. Despite Stephen's best efforts, Mark gave him nothing but corny, canned responses.
