EP 71: Tough Love Algorithms

Casey and Meg FINALLY have their good friends Cody and Christine on the show. If you’ve had escalating anxiety about 5G and the numerous conspiracies surrounding its supposed dangerous waves (like Meg has) – this is the show for you. Spoiler Alert: it’s not that big of a deal, according to Cody. And, since he’s a web developer (aka really smart tech guy/computer nerd) Meg asks him to calm her anxiety about the robots taking over. He explains going Incognito, 5G, Wikipedia, cookies and algorithms in a way that even UN-tech savvy, Meg can compute. The couples also discuss the Netflix documentary: The Social Dilemma.

Christine and Meg bond over the difficulties of early motherhood and how important it is to find your “type” of mom friends. The guys discuss and agree that it takes a real man to admit he’s full of limits (especially when it comes to parenting and relationships.) And, Meg gets Christine to share a secret confession that even Cody hadn’t heard until recording! It’s the longest episode in Mental Mom history. Buckle up. This is quite a ride.
