I know Chuck is actually a pretty good guy, but he sure seems like a bit of a Mikey on this episode

love the show but I am concerned about the referencing of a research study and accepting it without question.

Hi Guys! I absolutely love your show! Any chance that you could do an episode on American Indian boarding schools? Growing up in MN and living most of my life thus far in AZ, I hadn't been informed of or remember being educated ( twelve years of Catholic school) on this part of American history. The Heard museum in Phoenix has a fabulous permanent exhibit that sparked my interest in knowing the truth on what seems pretty horrible. I would love to listen to what you discover. Thanks for making my days so much more interesting! - Liz Muller

So hard parenting a teen. Most of stuff is learnt at school in UK and you covered it. I think the adults need to learn to not get embarrassed by it. A party to celebrate when all a kid wants to do is be private and is uber aware of appearance sounds horrific. We privately celebrated because anything more would have killed her body confidence. A show on how to keep lines of communication open with a male/female teen would be useful.

This podcast is just two people discussing opinions and bringing up some facts. Not very informative it would be good to do proper research so you don't present wrong facts

Didn't even know this is a thing you'd have to announce? Got rid of my fridge in 2008 since it was just a money eating, constantly humming device to storage 3 different yogurts and leftover dips in it. Just started to buy a new yogurt after I finished the old one and let go of dips altogether. Most of the stuff doesn't even need to be in the fridge and last just fine for 3 to 5 days when you have a dark cabinet at the shadow side of your house. Which is where your kitchen should be anyways.

death has repeatedly insisted they were not punk nor did they ever aim to be punk. Iggy pop & MC5 are also not punk, MC 5 are Detroit garage rock and iggi is somewhere between DGR & proto punk. death had heavy influence of psychedelic music.

Americans seem to be totally okay with the level of violence in their country. sure they make lots of podcasts about it. the news media talks about it, and people seem outraged for a day or two. but then it's back to business as usual until the next tragedy, where again. they give 24 hours of sadness and condolences to the victims families, and then it's back to business again. nothing done, nothing changed, until the next tragedy, and then it's rinse and repeat all over again.

I need to get the flat rewired and it's taking ages for me to save for it. I don't use my fridge as I don't trust it as it's so old but on the big bonus front I am eating lots and lots more vegetables. Also things like homemade lentil soup stays fresh for a couple of days and cheese as well. I have a cold cupboard for cheese and milk
