Episode 265: What’s the Deal With Pirates? Plus, Author Angela Garbes on the Science of Pregnancy

Episode 265

2nd August 2018

Biz and Theresa wonder what is up with pirates? Real pirates are known for theft and murder, but every other kid has a pirate costume. (And, let’s face it, they’re adorable.) From swordplay to walking the plank…I guess we’re all culturally cool with our kids admiring and identifying with this one particular violent and morally-corrupt lifestyle. LOL! But yeah honestly we’re fine with it, guys. Getting a group of kids to yell “ARRRRRRGH!” never gets old. Plus, Biz kisses camp goodbye, Theresa masters the morning, and we talk to Angela Garbes about her new book Like a Mother, A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy.
