Description

In this episode of The Brain Food Show, we are start out looking at whether there is actually any difference between various men’s and women’s bathroom products like shaving cream, razors, etc and why women pay more for basically everything.


We also have a brief message from a sponsor, Skillshare. Help support this show and learn a lot of interesting new skills, as well as TWO MONTHS FREE using the following link https://www.skillshare.com/brainfood


Next up, we basically rant for a really long time… Embedded in there is a discussion of a topic that is going to sound really boring, but in fact is actually quite fascinating, looking at such things as what a dictionary actually is, which is very different than what most people think. We also look at what it takes for a word to get put in there, if they ever come out, whether dictionary makers ever make mistakes like spelling errors or the like…. We promise this topic is far more interesting than it sounds. 🙂


On another note, if you could do us a huge favor and rate and review this show in whatever podcasting platform you’re using (including hopefully giving us some feedback related to the new format), we would be extremely grateful. Thanks!

the RnD, all their research is trying to get females whom are both doing the shopping and far more choosy with their own products over what they buy for their husbands. they will just grab whats cheapest for him, and he wont care and stay with them same thing for years, while she will try new products for herself and pay more. the whole "pink tax" thing is silly, even with makeup. its at worsdt self inflicted, women who want to use makeup or purpetuate an industry standard forcinf those who don't to step up, but its not sexist imo especially considering its kept up by any successful cosmetic company etc. hell, look at YouTube. makeup tutorials. my sister does them, cuz she loves it not because her BF gives a crap lol.
