  1. What makes a word profane? Why are my swear words different from my parents'? If swearing is so bad, why do we do it? And what can a culture's swear words tell us about the things they hold taboo? Today's guest is Dr. Benjamin K. Bergen, professor of cognitive science at UC San Diego and author of the book "What the F: What Swearing Reveals About Our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves."

  3. When Chief Justice Earl Warren was asked at the end of his career, “What was the most important case of your tenure?”, there were a lot of answers he could have given. After all, he had presided over some of the most important decisions in the court’s history — cases that dealt with segregation in schools, the right to an attorney, the right to remain silent, just to name a few. But his answer was a surprise: He said, “Baker v. Carr,” a 1962 redistricting case.  On this episode of More Perfect, we talk about why this case was so important; important enough, in fact, that it pushed one Supreme Court justice to a nervous breakdown, brought a boiling feud to a head, put one justice in the hospital, and changed the course of the Supreme Court — and the nation — forever.

  4. Peter Sagal is best known for hosting the wildly popular news game show on NPR, Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. But Peter didn’t always want to be a gameshow host. When he was 25, he was living in Los Angeles, had just quit his job and was pursuing a career as a playwright. Since then, he’s written many plays and has gone on to be one of the funniest voices in radio. In our interview we talked about artistic process, developing your voice, and comparing yourself to your peers. Here’s Peter Sagal on 25.

  5. Kanye West is a rapper, record producer, fashion designer, and current independent candidate for office in the 2020 United States Presidential Election.
  6. Part One: Candlepin or Bust! Jack, Mike, and Nate here for this installment of Hardly Focused! Don’t forget, this fine program can be heard on ALL the podcast apps – Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and more. Just search for “Hardly Focused!” To the shock of everyone in the studio, prior to recording Jack was watching the Denver Broncos crush the New England Patriots. Jack admits the only sport he’s into is bowling. This leads Jack and Mike to discuss candlepin bowling, a type of bowling found largely in New England. Hey Boston-folk – remember Candlepin Bowling on Channel 5? Saturday mornings used to be great. Part Two: Mike the Doomscroller Election Day in the union is just weeks away! Jack fires off this segment by discussing the “new” episode of the West Wing, which is filled with “get out and vote” messaging. Find “A West Wing Special to Benefit When We All Vote” on HBO Max! On that note, the group discusses the recent, rivalling Town Halls between Grandpa Joe Biden and Premier Ronald Thump. They speculate Tramp is fuming over losing the ratings battle to Biden, despite having his Town Hall broadcast on three networks. Our “president” also fails at trolling his Twitter followers. Meanwhile, Mike schools the room on “doom scrolling.” Don’t know what that is? During this heavily political climate, simply open Twitter or Facebook and scroll – boom, doom scrolling. Part Three: Air Drums and Headphones Jack begins this segment with the intention of shifting gears away from politics. Heading to Baton Rogue, a man is facing obscenity charges after being caught masturbating in his truck. His defense? “Air drumming.” Appropriately, this topic leads Jack to divulge the awkward first time he bought condoms. Nate also has an awkward “first time buying” story, and it has absolutely nothing to do with sex. Nate = 1, Jack = 0. Wrapping up this episode, Jack features audio of Paulette Dale, the woman who complimented Danny Tramp’s smile during his Town Hall. Shockingly, despite her compliments, Dale is voting for Biden in this election. Mike hypothesizes that she tried to troll him, and botched the delivery. Back up in your ass with the resurrection. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/hardlyfocused/support

  8. This week we talk about money, financial literacy, and credit. But don’t get it confused, we talk about it in a way you can understand it. That’s the gift today’s guest has. As the founder of RaisingBenjamin.com Carl Joseph Black breaks down complex finance news into bite-sized digestible nuggets anyone can understand. We didn’t really have enough time to discuss everything I wanted to know and we still went over the typical 20 or so minutes I try my best to hold the discussion to. We still covered a good amount of ground though. Some of the gems dropped: The difference between being rich vs being wealthy. Being rich is more about the material things people see. Being wealthy is the money moves that can’t be detected by the human eye, but still somehow disrupts or changes the way we live. Read the boring stuff. Get used to reading the boring stuff like financial newspapers. You’ll start to develop a 3rd eye for the way money works if you make a habit out of it. One example Carl gives is Warren Buffet. Buffet still finds time to read for an extended amount of hours a day. If that’s a habit he uses to keep himself wealthy, why don’t we take that same habit on? I don’t know about ready 5 hours a day though. Ha! Humanize data. Start finding ways to make data make sense to you in layman’s terms. This is one of those skills you can organically develop from reading financials a lot. Credit as an investor. Carl gives us a masterclass on how to build credit as a business to help us build wealth. If you loved this episode make sure to give Carl a shout on Twitter and get your invite to his newsletter The Dime. Be sure to check out my book “Don’t Dumb Down Your Greatness” Peace!

  11. The Persian forces had landed at Marathon Bay unopposed and had set up camp. The Athenians and Plataeans had now arrived at Marathon to challenge the Persians invasion. A stand off had ensured with both sides not taking the initiative, the Athenians debating wether to even fight at the Bay.Eventually, Miltiades would convince his fellow Athenian commanders to give battle. With a rousing speech that would bring Callimachus round to the merits in his arguments. The Greeks were outnumbered and made arrangement to match the Persian line. This though, would provide a weak point for the Persians to exploit.The Greek phalanxes crashed all along the Persian line, engaging in a manner, we are told, like never before, cover the distance at a run. It is still debated today what caused the Greeks to all of a sudden to act this day. The Persians would exploit the weak point in the Greek line but this early success would turn out to be a disaster. The Persians now were in a panic making their way back to their ships with the Greeks in toe, the carnage on the shore line would have been horrific.Tradition would have it that news of the Persian rout would make its back to Athens by the first Marathon run by Pheidippides. The Persian were able to embark the survivors of the battle and now made their way to attempt a direct attack on Athens. Though as they came into view, they could see the Athenian force prepared to give battle once again. They had travelled back to Athens from Marathon bay well aware the acropolis had been left undefended. This would effectively see the end of the first Persian Invasion, but the Persians would be back.

  13. We love when we get to dig into the stories of Black women who’ve demanded fair pay since...childhood and built thriving businesses serving their community from scratch. That’s right, childhood. Today’s guest, Sherrell Dorsey (@sherrell_dorsey), the founder of The Plug Daily - started getting paid from a little girl, and hasn’t accepted anything less than her full worth since. But that doesn't mean that it's Easy Street. There are real sacrifices and stretched checks that go along with entrepreneurship. And Dorsey's business - The Plug Daily - is a service that “investigates and reports on Black tech trends, stories, and breaking news with a rigor and analysis you won’t find elsewhere.” Data, diversity and quality journalism are the foundational tools Dorsey employs to make sure underserved and under-covered entrepreneurs and their companies get the shine they deserve amidst the technology boom. Keep listening to hear Sherrell’s story. #UnBossed PodcastUnBossed Host: Marquita Harris (@marquita_harris_)Executive Producer: Tiffany Ashitey (@misstiffsays)Producers: Ashley Hobbs (@ashleylatruly) + Shantel Holder (@shadesofshan_)Bookings: Marquita Harris, Tiffany AshiteyAudio: Anthony Frasier (@anthonyfrasier) + Josh Gwynn (@regardingjosh) Music: Gold Standard Creative (@gscdotnyc)Designer: Imani Nuñez (@profoundly_imani)

  23. In this episode of Science & Chill, I speak with three researchers from Harvard University -- Dr. Dragana Rogulja, Dr. Alexandra Vaccaro, and Dr. Yosef Kaplan Dor -- on the evolutionary origins of sleep, what the function of sleep is, and how a lack of sleep can be fatal (at least in flies and mice).  Their lab just published a study showing that sleep deprivation causes flies and mice to die after about 5-10 days, and provides a mechanism as to how this happens (hint...it involves the gut!).  I was excited to have this conversation and learned so much, and I know you will too.     Relevant links: Rogulja lab website Link to study: "Sleep loss can cause death through accumulation of reactive oxygen species in the gut" Study free full text   Podcast links: Become a Patreon Supporter Subscribe to the podcast on Apple Podcasts  Science & Chill YouTube Channel
