Ep. 69 (nice): Happy new fear

Click here to listen everywhere!

It’s a brand new year, and with it comes, well, some of the same old anxieties. We’re diving deep into what makes us nervous in 2022, but cutting it with some movie talk and some optimistic thoughts about capybaras.

Highlights:

[0:00] CoRri tells Mark about the devastatingly dangerous 1950s morning sickness cure, Thalidomide

[17:50] We talk about our attitudes toward the new year and go on quite a spiral about capybaras

[31:50] Mark’s annual new year’s dead pool takes a shocking plot twist. Plus, our next book club is January 22nd and our next watch-along is January 29th, so mark your calendars!

[50:20] We face a rare disagreement in the types of movies we like to watch

[1hr8:30] We discuss what we’re anxious about in 2022, and why we respond differently to Don’t Look Up. (we get past talking about the movie specifically at 1hr16)
