E478 – REBROADCAST Sara & Aaron’s Mom



Hosts are in summer mode (it’s not over yet) and so we’re bringing you an oldie.  Aaron’s visiting his mom, so we thought it would be a good time to bring back an episode in which she visited the studio, and stopped counting swears.  See you next week!

Today in the studio: Sara Dittmer, from Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Portland.  We talk comparative city life quality, regional disasters, and also talk shop about what one might do with their hair after a bicycle commute (Adele joins us by phone to clear up some thoughts that two dudes don’t have the experience to comment on).

Also: Aaron’s Mom also joins us! Aaron took Anna and his mom to the Oregon Aquarium.

Thanks to our beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, and, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

PBJMatt: “I’m not ready to go back to a landline, but I do try to make it a point to be present and leave my phone in my pocket when I am among my friends”

Reuben: forest bathing: i.e. being in the woods without your phone.

@GeraldFitt: “I met a girl who said she and her friends stack their phones vertically when hanging out. They all get fidgety wanting to check their phones, but it works.”
