1. Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul, two candidates one would expect would oppose one another, have both come out in support of Minimum Income. The idea being that we replace a number of government programs to help those below the poverty line and the government simply writes a check to everyone so that they can survive. Jen talks about reframing how we think and discuss solving poverty away from simply providing money and towards reducing cognitive load. Listen in.
2. Cait has found that the people who are posting lots and lots of happy posts on Facebook have lives that are the most in shambles. Do you look at photos of delicious meals and smiling couples and suspect it is but a calculated veneer?
3. Once a dowdy shoe, always a dowdy shoe–is that so? Does dowdy refer to an idea intrinsically linked by way of being juxtaposed to the constantly shifting and evolving idea of beauty or is it something unto itself? The Shebangers examine dowdiness and whether Cait was unfair in her dismissal of a pair of shoes Shelley tried on for a graduation.
