    Welcome to Episode 9 aka BONUS EPISODE!
    We take time to reflect on our first season of Psychology of Nothing as well as how human we really are---this includes you! Take a listen if you want to ride the rollercoaster (thoughtfully) with us, including our poignant conclusion that smelling belly lint is just a clear sign of being human.
    We are preparing our second season and hope you join us for the next ride! Let us know your comments, reflections on our first season, and any other feedback---really, we're curious!

    Beer Pressure

    Beer Pressure

    Welcome to Episode 8!
    This week, we explore the suds in our lives. In this case, we mean alcohol. 
    What kinds of pressure do we put on ourselves about drinking? Is it our values? The menu? The city? Where does the pressure come from? What do you tell yourself when you decide to drink or not to drink? We explore this question.
    Update alert: This episode wraps up our first season of the pod. Let's keep the conversation going while we work towards Season 2.

    Welcome to Episode 7!
    This week, take a close look in the lighted magnifying mirror with us as we explore telltale signs of aging and our own judgments. 
    Jane discloses a secret, Sarah questions her lineage, and we link Botox with tomatoes in January (in the Western Hemisphere).
    If you're feeling our vibes, it would be such a gift if you could rate us or leave a review. It's one of the few times we encourage judgement.

    Jane and Sarah explore the ways our cars try to talk to us. Buuuutttt....they just get the cold shoulder. This, of course, won't come to bite us in the butt later. 
    We learn that when it comes to our car, we better check it before we wreck it.
    Hit that play button to hear about our near misses, being "indepdundent," shoes that sound like waterfalls, and how Sarah doesn't deserve a car and is a bad American.
