Matty from Nooks and Crannies on UFOs, ESP, Botanicals, Bonobo Sex, Orgasm Boxes, Indigenous Groups, Racial Classification, Brains & CTE



E116 – Hope your brain sponge is ready to soak up some fascinating knowledge! Matty, easily the smartest Nooks and Crannies podcaster besides co-host Evan, serves us up a verbal pu pu platter of stories and information as to why humans do the things and think the way we do. He has thoughts on ancient alien theory, having under his belt 17 years of college, multiple degrees in many social sciences, a touch of ESP, and two personal UFO sightings! Yes, he gives details on his spacecraft viewings, down to the unfortunate interruption. He explains his beliefs about horoscopes, Newtonian physics, and ancient people’s understanding of the cosmos. We ask about indigenous cultures in Canada and the US, talk history books and racial classification, and learn about puberty rituals and practices. We find out feelings on hemp, ayahuasca, and iboga as we chat about psychedelics and cultures. There is lots of laughter as we hear about primate sexuality amongst nonbinary, self-loving, sword-fighting bonobos. And we learn why there were a bunch of sad non-orgasmic naked people sitting on crystal boxes in the 50’s! Hear the conversation on why people, anthropologically speaking, fantasize about partners or have obsessive sexual behaviors. This leads to neurotransmitter and neurology talk, and we find out about Matty’s many concussions and CTE, and talk disability policies and thoughts on healthcare. It was a wonderful discussion and we loved learning a little bit about his family too. Hope you enjoy this insightful, funny dialog with our friend too and let us know what you think!

Mean Girls



E55 – We have encountered undermining women lately and try to get to the bottom of it. Mouse and Weens dig into some evolutionary biology – caveman theories – and we look at young girl groups to understand early mean girl behavior. Why are some women hurtful to each other in the workplace? How do you deal with anger, jealousy, resentment, and sabotage? What can women do to remedy the situation? Hear about both Joelle’s and Julianne’s current mean girl situations, after we play catch up talking kids, cord and screen drama, a Hulk Hogan archery master, whether our dad was the Golden State Killer, and reminiscing about a cute crush boy. Then take a 60’s music trivia quiz with us! The big picture here is to learn about female dynamics and how to improve future situations and relationships with other women.
