Is sugar really more addictive than cocaine? Does intermittent fasting work? Should I buy crypto? We’re all on 24-7 information overload, on our news feeds, in our inboxes, on TikTok… it’s hard to know what is real and what isn’t. Every week on CALL ME CURIOUS, Nikki Boyer (Dying for Sex, The Daily Smile) and friends like Mr. Malone are going to dive into all the things you’ve heard about, but don’t really know about. That’s right - No more nodding along at parties or running into the bathroom to Google, “Why do people get nipple rings?” We’ll learn and laugh as we explore life’s little mysteries, the internet’s hot topics, and burning gotta-know questions.
