    Pop Culture Happy Hour2022 Oscars Recap
    "I’m still shocked at what happened last night at the Oscars. If you’re up for Best Actor, stay classy. And he used his speech time to kind of apologize, but not really. And I like how people are comparing this to Kayne, Will smith wasn’t escorted out, does this show the flaws of Hollywood? What do you guys think? "

    Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise
    Ghostlore of Hawaii: Paranormal ParadiseEp. 14: The Hole
    "I love the way Uncle Jared used his voice here. I don’t want to spoil too much, but I love how it’s perfect for an aside joke and then a few minutes later, flips into a gruesome narration. This episode’s story is horrifying. I’m pretty sure my mental image of that “saw” scene is going to flash before my eyes whenever I have to stick my hand any where I can’t see it. "

    This Is DatingAre Open Relationships Right for Me?
    "I think the title for this episode is a little misleading, but the interview itself was great. Polysecure sounds like a phenomenal book. I think there's a lot to take away fromt this episode not just about open relationships, but relationships in general. Would have loved to have had this resource during my ENM days. "

    Uncanny Japan - Japanese Folklore, Folktales, Myths and Language
    Uncanny Japan - Japanese Folklore, Folktales, Myths and LanguageThe Killing Stone: Sessho Seki (Ep. 96)
    "“Breaking supernatural news” is not a phrase I was expecting to hear today, but last week a stone that was said to hold a nine-tailed fox spirit was split in half. Uncanny Japan does an amazing job of teaching the history and myth behind this stone and the area surrounding it. Also that festival sounds like a blast and I want to find the pictures that were posted of it."
