  1. I hate spiders, but Shadi’s take on it was really enlightening and has made me see spiders and various bugs in my house in a different light. Yes, the spider talk was an enlightening part of this podcast.

      Have you read any scientific literature on the subject? My normal google scholar techniques don’t yield any serious analysis.

    Thank you for this frank discussion.  It was really enlightening.  I hope lots of people listen to this.  I know it’s helped me to understand trans people just a little better.

    I was never a cereal guy, always a toasts-for-breakfast kind of guy. Still am. I did like honey nut Cheerios, more as a snack on its own than in a bowl with milk. With my nuts allergies I can’t do it anymore, but technically there’s less almond extract than there’s salt in them now.
    Fascinating conversation about the non-cereal part of the podcast too. 😀
