This month we’re psychologists. And you have to pay us $225/hr to be told that you’ll swim faster if you tell yourself you’re terrific. So pony up, kiddo. Kings and queens of Brooklyn Mitra Jouhari, Alex Watt, and Zach Zimmerman floor us with giggling.

Hosted by Blythe Roberson, Madelyn Freed

Recorded Tuesday, June 6, 2016 at Union Hall

We don’t mean to spook you but someday Blythe is going to die. What is going to happen to her? We will tell you in excruciating detail and Madelyn’s not going to like it. Luckily, Madelyn’s mom didn’t ever give her permission to die so she can’t. They talk to Order of the Good Death member, author, and alive ghost Bess Lovejoy. We got some cool ass witches on the docket scamming us with tricks, Jo Firestone, Josh Gondelman, and Friends Who Folk. (Bowen Yang’s motivational dance to fend off rigor mortis was unfortunately too hot to share!)

We did this show because Madelyn had a fever dream about a scientific study that may never have existed at all. If you have any information about it, please call 911. We truly figure out love in this episode with the help of the queen, Dr. Helen Fisher. Elna Baker, Patti Harrison, Alexandra Song, and Catherine Cohen thrill us with their little skits.
