green lighting can help reduce seizures and (this should be of more to Jesse) migraines. Red is supposed to reduce sleep disruption if you wake up in the middle of the night, but, for me, the nightmares would outweigh that

These two are awesome. With all the differing angles of this debate I feel it boils down to "Happy Wife equals happy life". That said, the lights are cool.

There should be a term for a diet that's primarily vegetarian but eats cows as the only meat. Like pescatarian is for fish. Bovatarian? Something like that. I know people who won't eat little animals like chickens and fishes because it takes more deaths to get the same amount of food. Not my personal stance, but it makes a sort of philosophical sense, and enough people believe it to require a term.

this show continues to lose my "listens", due to the strategic ad placements and their extreme lengths. I'm yet to encounter another podcast, no matter how successful, that has this length of ad time to content ratio. especially this intricately placed. it's becoming not worth the content.

27:10 -- not based on an existing IP? The Lion King was based on Kimba The White Lion. There were even photos circulating at the time of one of the animators wearing a Kimba t-shirt. I adored The Lion King, and still do, but it definitely was a retelling of Kimba.

I used to have a thank you light. It took 4 AA batteries, suction cupped to the rear window, and was WAY too big to be safe. I would love an official light designed to work with thre car and not obstruct visibility
