Show Notes for Thursday, July 06, 2023


Dear John,

I've been in a relationship with a boy since we met in high school. We live together and have been together for 15 years. He's a great guy...definitely husband material. I'm not exactly a perfect girlfriend. I've cheated on him several times, but we've worked it out and we're happy together. The problem is that every time we're intimate, I have to think about someone else to stay interested. Lately, I have been thinking of a coworker. And now I'm worried. My partner knows nothing about it but I'm worried I'm about to blow up the relationship again. Am I subconsciously about to cheat again? Should I try to work things out? Go to a therapist? Or talk to him? I don't want to mess up. What should I do?

America’s fastest-growing sport, Pickleball, is taking a toll on players’ wrists, legs and shoulders. And on the health care system. UCB analysts say injuries sustained from playing the game will cost Americans $377 million in health care costs this year, about 10% of total unexpected medical costs. It’s estimated that there will be around 67,000 emergency room visits, 366,000 outpatient visits and 9,000 surgeries related to pickleball injuries this year. Around 60% of pickleball injuries are sprains, strains, and fractures. Twenty percent are contusions, abrasions, or internal injuries; and fewer than 10% are lacerations or dislocations.

A life-sized version of Barbie’s classic ‘DreamHouse’ will be available for overnight stays ahead of the release of the “Barbie” movie. The Malibu DreamHouse is listed on Airbnb for 2 one-night stays for up to 2 guests July 21 and July 22. The listing, supposedly written by ‘Ken’, describes the house as a “life-size toy pink mansion.” It reads: “Welcome to my Kendom! While Barbie is away, she has handed over the keys to her Malibu DreamHouse…and my room could be yours for the night.” The house boasts an outdoor disco dance floor, a swimming pool, and a wardrobe full of Barbie and Ken-style outfits. Booking starts July 17. Barbie arrives in theaters July 21.


Warner Bros.’ highly-anticipated “Barbie” movie has been banned in Vietnam. The film, directed by Greta Gerwig, was set to hit theaters in the country and around the world on July 21. But state media has announced the movie will not be released due to a scene that includes a map using the “nine-dash line” — a set of line segments that represent China’s territorial claims in the South China Sea — which Vietnam claims violates its sovereignty. The line is highly controversial as many of China’s neighbors— including Viet Nam, Taiwan and the Philippines, have competing and overlapping territorial claims, and the Chinese territory is contested.

Vanna White is holding out for her own wheel of fortune. It was reported earlier this week that she has “lawyered up” in an effort to get a raise to continue her run on “Wheel of Fortune” when Ryan Seacrest takes over as host next year. Sources say that White is negotiating for the pay disparity between her and Sajak to be addressed. On the show, they are introduced this way: “Here are the stars of our show, Pat Sajak and Vanna White.” The problem? Their salaries are anything but equal. White makes $3 million a year, and hasn’t had a raise in 18 years. Sajak reportedly makes $15 million, and while White isn’t asking for that, sources say she’s demanding half of what Sajak makes.

Kevin Costner’s estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, is willing to vacate the mansion she used to share with him, but on one condition. She has been holed up at the $145 million property — despite their prenup, which says she had 30 days to leave after she filed for divorce on May 1. After weeks of legal back and forth, Baumgartner now says she’ll will vacate if Costner coughs up more money to guarantee that she won’t be left penniless, says Radar Online. She wants the “Yellowstone” actor to agree to pay any support fees that the judge orders him to at a July 12 hearing in their divorce proceedings.

Smiling is 70% more attractive than wearing makeup.

In the latest example of “shrinkflation”, brewers in the UK are cutting the alcohol content — but not the price — of several of their most popular beers. Greene King, a major UK brewer and pub chain, has cut the alcohol content of its popular Old Speckled Hen pale ale to 4.8% from 5%. In March, the country’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame, slashed alcohol content of its Spitfire and Bishops Finger, while keeping the sizes of their bottles and cans the same. A newspaper report says this “drinkflation” mirrors “shrinkflation” — the practice of food producers and supermarkets reducing the size of their products without cutting prices. Under UK law, brewers pay less tax on drinks with a lower alcohol content. The newspaper claimed that the companies pocketed this saving rather than passing it onto customers through lower prices.

It is being called “the world’s hardest dish” – and we’re pretty sure they’re correct. A traditional stir-fry featuring stones as its key ingredient has sparked culinary curiosity on Chinese social media. Samplers are supposed to suck on the small rocks to enjoy the dish’s rich and spicy flavor. After sucking off the flavors, they spit out the rocks – hence the dish’s name “suodiu”, which means: “suck and dispose.” Videos of people sampling suodiu, which originated in the province of Hubei, have sprung up all over Chinese social media. Vendors pour chilli oil onto pebbles sizzling on a grill, sprinkle them with garlic sauce, then stir-fry everything with a mix of garlic cloves and diced peppers. Each portion costs about 16 yuan (US$2.30).

THE LIST: Brought to you by


Caesar – It’s not a salad. It’s a drink similar to the Bloody Mary, but better because it includes Clamato juice (rather than tomato juice), along with vodka, horseradish, Worcestershire and celery salt.

KD – It’s short for Kraft dinner, the classic Mac & Cheese in a box.

Hydro bill – While others call it their “electric bill”, Canadians pay hydro bills. It comes from where many Canadians’ power is created, hydroelectric generators.

Toboggan – While most countries with snow go “sledding”, Canadians prefer “tobogganing”.
