It's very challenge to listen to a guest who says "like" 10 times per every sentence.

Listening to this was enlightening. I wouldn't have thought about liquids being heavy. I'll have to look for a shampoo bar instead of liquid shampoo

I love Aubrey and Maintenence Phase. Once you realize how deeply anti fat or society is, you see it *everywhere*. movies, TV, books, magazines, etc.

Loved this episode so much when it first aired that I bought Oliver Burkeman's book, Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals. It's an excellent read and I highly recommend it.

Like sorry but uninviting a sibling/family from the wedding because they bring a child and a plus one is just rude.

Loved this episode, will definitely be putting a fair chunk of it to use (in a "I have basically no money to spend on it" way 😅) #TIL @nprlifekit The fact that I've already decided to learn to do my own #tailoring since I was recently gifted a sewing machine will hopefully help ^_^

Really great episode, I've certainly noticed that after hours of binging YouTube I often feel "bleh" but now I have a much better understanding of why. @nprlifekit
