    Gay Face: why do so many gay people look similar?

    Gay Face: why do so many gay people look similar?

    Gay face is a real thing. The science is so fascinating as to why it might exist, and much of the research is meant to help understand the biological impacts of being queer. Today we talk about gay face, do we have it, what does it MEAN to have it and why do so many gay people look the same. The information will likely shock you!

    GAY FACE - why do gay people look like that? LOL

    Cults vs. Communes: is it time to join one?

    Cults vs. Communes: is it time to join one?

    Cults are fascinating but dangerous, so is it time to join a commune? Today we talk about the psychology of cults, and why communes may be a separate helpful way to live together and be better for the environment. The psychology of living lifestyles differently than the nuclear family creates a lot of tension, and the reasons are surprising. Today we break down the psychology, science and history of cults and communes to help you figure out if it is time to join one.
    STUDYTIME: Cults - why are they so popular right now?

    Gay Voice: can you tell if someone is gay from their speech? ft. The Fitness Marshall

    Gay Voice: can you tell if someone is gay from their speech? ft. The Fitness Marshall

    Can you tell if someone is gay from their voice? There is a lot of new research on the 'gay accent' or 'gay voice' - and why it might be that gay men and gay women speak differently than hetero people. The research is fascinating - so we decided to have our good friend Caleb Marshall (The Fitness Marshall) on to talk about all of our relationships to the gay voice.

Indeed entertaining and full of wonder

Been following both of you guys all the way from AsapSCIENCE. Great show that brings up things in life I never thought could be that interesting (my personal fave at the moment is about the all-inclusive trips). How you two interact and debate is also very fun to listen too, keep up the good work!
