Why are people so inconsistent? Is there such a thing as character? And did Stephen once have the world's longest chain of gum wrappers?
Is there such a thing as a victimless crime? In an unfair system, is dishonesty okay? And are adolescent vandals out of ideas? 
How do you know when it’s the right time to retire? What does a “good” retirement look like? And will Stephen and Angela ever really hang up their hats?

What do gamblers and referees have in common? When do machines make better decisions than people? And has Stephen been replaced by a computer?
How can you break a bad habit if you’re not aware that you’re doing it? Does Barack Obama grind his teeth? And is Angela’s dentist a crook? 
What’s the difference between schadenfreude and sadism? Can envy be put to good use? And how do you teach a kid to punch a clown?
Can a little dishonesty be a good thing? How many fibs does Angela tell every day? And why does Stephen have a forehead?
If you’re frustrated with your family, should you cut ties with them? Who’s more likely to break with relatives over politics, liberals or conservatives? And what would it take for Stephen to buy a baby elephant?
How much can you tell about someone from the first few seconds of a Zoom call? What did Stephen think of Angie when he first met her? And: a special message to babies from the future.

I worked for WSU Extension and we used the same process for camps with at risk youth and to help classrom teachers develop a sense of belonging in the classroom. It was amazing! I learned so much about myself and human behavior while going through the ropes course training. I still apply aspects in my life and work now, even though it is not the focus in my current work. It has been over 15 years and I still have relationships with former students who are now in college or have begun their families and professional work life. Everything in this episode resonates with me for sure! Thank you for always sharing awesome information.

Anyone who lives above the polar circle knows that for some part of the winter (how much depends on the latitude) they won't see any daylight, just the polar night. In Norway, the weather reporter indicates a clear sky at that time with a symbol showing a half sun below a straight line. During the summer, above the polar circle, people experience the polar day, or midnight sun.

Psychological subjects have always been interesting to follow and this one as well was quite amusing. And I also loved the challenging way the conversation was being continued.

Also disappointed you are giving these Aholes air time. I guess it’s a nice place of privilege not to worry about businesses like this.

Chick-fil-A is terrible. I fervently hope for their demise. Homophobia hate chicken is not yummy.

I love how the fact check is so meticulous as to point out Angela's wrong math in the stair climbing scenario, and also how the episode ends on such a sweet note. Go team "Duckner / Dubworth"!

One viral tweet in the Persian feed goes on as “I’m afraid of getting married as much as never being married”. Loooooots of people responded with the same feelings, some over the same decision, some about having kids, some about migration, just to mention the most repeated responses. Resonates with Angela’s Twitter poll.
