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.
Marcus in CHI: danger! recall on disc brakes!
JohnnyK shares the Lindy Effect: the longer something’s been around, the more likely it will persist!
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.”
@dudeluna shares another pooping-your-pants story.
music: Ryan J. Lane (intro & outro) & Hurtbird (headlines)
