53: Pain Points


Pain Points

Episode 53 on Saturday, Aug 10, 2019

Remember back when we were funny? Neither do we. Remember back when we did more parody ads and fewer weird skits? Pepperidge Farm remembers. And so do we. That’s why we start things off with a weird skit and an old school parody ad. Because when it comes to schools, there are not schools which are like those which are old.

Anyway, David might be back with the show—in an engaged sort of manner. He has lots of follow up, which, oddly, Jim was excited about. Absence makes the heart grow forgetful. After a flood of follow up and some talk of socialism, we finally reach our main topic: all the stuff outside of you that affects your cognition and emotions, especially sleep. It’s a catchy title, no?
