Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode Matt discusses the horrifying domestic terrorist attack that took place in Georgia earlier this week, and breaks down one of the major reasons there’s been such a massive uptick in hate crimes against Asian-Americans over the course of the last year. (Hint: the guy who coined the race-baiting term ‘China Virus’ has something to do with it.) Other topics Matt covers in today’s episode: what happens to our brains as we get older, what it really means to be ‘middle aged’, the exact age at which we technically become ‘old’, all the ways the world is trying to make Matt hate Bruce Springsteen even though he has always loved Bruce Springsteen, the Biden administration’s absurd firing of several staff members for smoking marijuana (even if it was legal when and where they did it!), why it’s ok and in fact necessary to make fun of / criticize Joe Biden now that he’s the president— and, lastly, Matt expresses confusion about why there are so many 90s songs about homeless people, and wonders whether these songs were exploitative or just a strange trend he will never understand. (He also sings some of the songs.)
