Thanks for telling me about The Big One podcast! I live in LA and this was really helpful. Trying to look up about this online few years back was more confusing. I love how they worked to give a good picture of the scenario that we are likely to experience when the big one hits. Great timing too, since it on everyone's mind in LA right now.

why not just call them illegal immigrants, considering that's exactly what they are? It seems like you're intentionally using dishonest terms to pretend it's just dumb racist Americans hating on poor foreign families looking to start a new life here.

"Everyone should have just dropped everything and focused on food" "I was cheering for the Night King. I was irritated enough at this setting. You know, clearly they did not prepare enough food for winter, they clearly do not deserve to survive this." Uh...? what did Stacy and this guy think Sansa Stark was doing this whole time? Sitting on her hands? 😂 She DID get supplies.

I would have liked to hear about the value of child care. They really portrayed working more as being only a good thing and didn't mention anything about children seeing their parents less.

Scarlet Widow? No one ever messes up the male Avenger names. Though, now I want to see some character designs for that.

Remy Your comment was helpful because I didn't realize the problem was "just" NPR podcasts! I thought it was like castbox or something. THIS IS WHY I DO READ THE COMMENTS! {Thanks, Remy!}

I would have liked to hear the hours worked, broken down by profession. I know on avg men work about 52 mins more a day but haven't seen it broken down in fields.

I can't imagine taking a cab to travel 2 miles in 22 minutes. Any alternative mode of transport seems more efficient

introverts aren't quiet or shy. the psychological definition is introverts being more energized from alone time and quiet.

have you seen the YouTube videos about full of food? this is something new. Well, this is due to two factors: 10% of the population is gone and with USD 3$ minimum wage a month! there is no change to afford to buy food and play for water, electricity, gasoline, etc... And that my friends, it is an indicator
