    Second-Listen Saturday: Playing Our Parental Roles

    Today, we're talking about an article [https://bold.expert/from-philosopher-to-negotiator-these-parental-roles-help-kids-thrive/] that outlines some of the roles parents need to play to help kids thrive (it's an interview with the coauthor of a new book, The Formula: Unlocking the Secrets to raising Highly Successful Children [https://amzn.to/2IsUJz1].) We've performed them all, and have several to add to the list.

    Roundabout Roundup: Blackout Coffee Co. Flavored Coffee of the Month Club and Aura Bora Sparkling Water

    On this week’s Roundabout Roundup, we are here for your flavored beverage needs. Terri's shouting out the Flavored Coffee of the Month Club [https://www.blackoutcoffee.com/products/flavored-coffee-of-the-month-club?selling_plan=1905754223] from Blackout Coffee Co. (so far, she's sampled white chocolate and raspberry and then black currant). If you prefer your fruity flavors over ice, Catherine recommends the unique sparkling water flavors at Aura Bora, such as basil berry, cactus rose, and chai cranberry [https://aurabora.com/].

    What Is a Good Job Worth?

    What Is a Good Job Worth?

    Inspired by a Follow the Herd question [https://www.followtheherd.org/game/], we ask: Would you rather have a job you love for $75,000 a year, or a job you hate for $125,000 a year? We think it's a pretty easy answer, but at least one of our family members surprised us with their thoughts on the topic.

    Can Personality Be Plagiarized?

    Can Personality Be Plagiarized?

    A few months ago, the No Stupid Questions podcast did an episode about whether it's okay to copy aspects of other people's personality, titled "Do You Mind If I Borrow Your Personality?" [https://freakonomics.com/podcast/do-you-mind-if-i-borrow-your-personality/]. So we copied that topic and discussed it today.

    What We’re Watching: Only Murders in the Building “Flipping the Pieces” and Rutherford Falls “History Fair”

    What We’re Watching: Only Murders in the Building “Flipping the Pieces” and Rutherford Falls “History Fair”

    On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2: It was another rough week for Mabel on Only Murders in the Building as she unlocked some traumatic memories with the help of Theo Dimas (even though he only caught about a third of what she said). We ended on a cliffhanger as the city was plunged into a blackout, setting up next week's episode: season 2, episode 8, "Hello Darkness."

    Rutherford Falls used "History Fair" to comment on the connection between art and artists and how past bad behavior affects current work. It was all very high-minded (even if it did mostly take place in the kitchen of a P.F. Chang's) but didn't get us anywhere on the season-long plot of the lawsuit. Next: "Negotiations (season 1, episode 6).
