The Power of Habit has a lot more to do with our pop addictions than I ever imagined.

This morning I had the delight to find out that Purim is a thing that exists. I also have the delight of having a “translator” who can explain things for us. I couldn’t help but share…
I’m gonna break this down real quick for y’alls:
Purim is the ONE holiday in the Jewish calendar that doesn’t involve the following:
-encountering elderly relatives that make you wonder what you’ll smell like at 87
What it does involve is:
- binge drinking
- baked goods (hamentaschen to be exact)
Essentially it’s “Jewdi Gras.”
This episode brought to you by Ben & Jerry’s, maker of the new core flavors (note: Ben & Jerry’s provided no monetary compensation for all of these sick mentions, we both just love their ice cream). We talk dessert, why you should stay at home rather than come to Austin for SXSW, the Oscars, and the secret world of #fratlife. “#SUCKIT, JULIA!” – Galadriel/mid-60s Bob Dylan
I answered a question on Quora about attending Ohio University and I couldn’t help but share. College is a crazy vortex of fun and hard work. Or a vortex of Nati Light and Hot Pockets. Actually I think it’s all of those things. Take a gander at my answer and let me know what you experienced in college especially if you went to OU.
What is campus life like at Ohio University?
The Olympics are upon us and how do we celebrate? By completely forgetting to talk about them! We welcome friend of the show Rachel Lafranconi to talk about Las Vegas, her allegiance to Soundcloud, and going to strip clubs on Valentine’s Day. Enjoy.
