E212. Dad Porn: It’s Not What You Think (and We Love It)

E210. Where Do Mean Girls Go When They Die?
1:16:11Bethany Mandel and Lyndsey Fifield have been on the receiving end of a lot of online hate mobs (let’s be honest, Bethany’s gotten the worst of it) but they’ve also occasionally been mean girls, too. In the wake of Chrissy Teigan’s rapid fall from grace after years of tormenting people online (including Bethany!), we wonder… what DO we want to happen to bullies? Should there be a limit on cancelling someone for tweets they sent years ago? WHEN is Lyndsey having this baby and is she actually in labor right now? Tuck in for another weird and wonderful episode of the LadyBrains podcast. PS Bethany has a new podcast with Jon Gabriel called Edit This!

What Our Kids Won’t Know
46:36Kelly Maher and Lyndsey Fifield consider all the things they’ll have to tell their kids about one day—dial-up internet, encyclopedias, the satisfaction of a well-timed trip to the bathroom during a commercial break, memorizing phone numbers?
