About This Show
The podcast on how to moonwalk through your 20's. Imagine everything you ever wanted to know when you were 17 or 26, one joke and science reference at a time.
From social dynamics to careers, status-signaling to Tinder, or childhood to "adulting", we break down the why and the practical how-to (using everything from behavioral economics to even animal biology) and tell our stories while we're at it.
We take every 20-something problem and help solve it in style. If you're 16 and mistakenly decided to text Sarah that she "smells nice" or you're 25 and just bought a family-sized pack of Argyle sweaters from Costco last month and suddenly realized your life has no purpose, you're at the right place).
