Show Notes for Thursday, August 10, 2023


Dear John,

My husband and I have been having problems. It started a few months ago when I found flirty messages between him and my best friend. They spent all day messaging each other for months. He even told her he would like to have her come with him on a work trip and mentioned her feeding him grapes and wine in the bathtub. This isn't the first time I've caught him texting during our relationship. Now, I love him. And we worked on the relationship. But every day I wonder who he's flirting with now. And last month I caught him again, with a different friend of mine. Our third anniversary is coming up later this month. He wants to celebrate. I'm thinking of celebrating by telling him we're through until he stops doing this. What do you think?

SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

As little as one or 2 minutes of vigorous exercise a day could lower your cancer risk, according to a new study. This activity can include power walking, climbing stairs, doing strenuous housework or playing with the kids, according to Dr. Emmanuel Stamatakis, lead author of the study published last week in the journal JAMA Oncology. In a study involving 22,000 adults, those who incorporated about 4½ minutes of vigorous activity in short 1–2-minute bouts had more than 30% lower incidence rates of cancer.

The saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” might need an update. A new study says a daily helping of strawberries may keep cognitive decline and heart disease away. Strawberries are powerful antioxidants, and in a release, the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at San Diego State said their study “demonstrates that consuming strawberries may promote cognitive function and improve cardiovascular risk factors like hypertension. We’re encouraged that a simple dietary change, like adding strawberries to the daily diet, may improve these outcomes in older adults.” Previous research has shown that that eating a few strawberries each day may also improve gut health and provide some relief of inflammatory bowel disease.


mBrad Pitt is slamming the brakes on his upcoming Formula 1 racing film in support of the SAG-AFTRA strike. He’s been shooting the movie, “Apex”, in Europe, which is outside the jurisdiction of the Hollywood actors’ union. But in a show of solidarity, Pitt — who is starring as an F1 driver in the Apple TV+ production — has decided to pause the production until the strike is resolved. In related news, EGOT winner Viola Davis is backing away from “G20”, even after the film got the SAG-AFTRA interim agreement necessary to start production.

Seann William Scott has revealed the paltry amount he was paid to appear in 1999 hit comedy “American Pie”. He told TV host Rick Elsen that he earned $8,000 for his work on the movie, which went on to make $235 million at the box office. Scott said that his pay “was a lot of money” for him at the time, and he used it to buy “a used Thunderbird for like $5000 or maybe $6000”. He’s not sure what he did with the rest, but he “ended up having to work at the LA Zoo as a churro guy, so maybe it was even less than $8000.” Scott, who played the role of lacrosse player ‘Steve Stifler’, continued working on the hit sex teen comedy franchise, earning a reported $5million for his role in 2012’s “American Reunion”.

Jamie Lee Curtis says she shudders to think what would have happened if her opioid addiction occurred during today’s fentanyl crisis. Curtis, who has been sober 23 years, said in an interview that she’d “dead” if the drug was as available back then as it is today. The 64-year-old “Halloween” star, who was also addicted to alcohol and used cocaine, called herself “incredibly lucky” to not have completely blown up her life as an addict.Br

ce yourself — The 10th installment of the “Saw” hits theaters on Sept. 29 – and the first trailer is out now. In it, Jigsaw killer ‘John Kramer’ travels to Mexico for an experimental medical procedure in hopes of a miracle cure for his cancer. But he quickly learns that the entire operation is a scam. A voice is heard saying: “Of all the men to cheat, you picked John Kramer?” With a new game in play, full of Jigsaw’s devious and deranged traps, the serial killer says: “It’s time to play a game. You all pretended to cure me. But what I have planned for each of you is very real.” LINK:

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Awkwardness is usually thought of as a negative trait to be overcome, but it turns out it may be a key to professional success. That’s the argument put forth in the upcoming book “Good Awkward: How to Embrace the Embarrassing and Celebrate the Cringe to Become The Bravest You”, by workplace performance expert Henna Pryor. She defines workplace awkwardness as “what we feel when the person we believe ourselves to be ― so our true selves ― is…temporarily at odds with the person that people see on display.” And while being awkward can have its drawbacks, Pryor argues that it is also “an emotion that’s 100% universal”, and essential to professional growth. How so? Because by definition, if you are to advance in your career, you need to expose yourself to new and sometimes awkward situations along the way. She also says that research suggests that showing some awkwardness can make us appear more human and likable to colleagues.

Calling all real-life ‘Kens’: If you’ve seen the movie, you know what his occupation is, and here’s your chance to follow his lead. Luxury hotel line Coco Collection has posted a job listing for someone to live like Ken (played by Ryan Gosling), who in the movie, says that his job is “just Beach.” The “job” opening is at Coco Bodu Hithi resort in the Maldives, and one lucky applicant will be flown there to take on the job of “Beach” for 10 days “with a partner or Allan of their choosing.” They will enjoy the “full board meal plan,” return flights, no actual responsibilities — and one massage each, because working as “Beach” for 10 days “is tiring work.” Here are some of the criteria that job applicants must meet:

Ability to stand proudly in the sand

Empty their head of all thoughts

Keep track of the morning waves

Have their rollerblades with them at all times (though good luck using them on the sandy beaches of the island…)

Know the words to ‘Push’ by Matchbox Twenty by heart

Have 60 years experience as “Beach” (preferred but not essential)

The lucky hiree will also get a “guaranteed” tan and “perfect hair at Beach’s discretion,” though no official uniform, but access to an entire wardrobe of accessories. Apply here:

Sports Drinks: You must know by now that they usually contain a LOT of sugar. Regularly consuming hi-sugar drinks can harm your teeth and increase risk of obesity and diabetes.

Instant Soups: LOTS of added salt, and it may also contain emulsifiers and other artificial chemicals that are bad for the gut, triggering inflammation.

Protein Bars: A classic example of ultra-processed foods, often with lots of sugar, flavorings, bulking agents, and emulsifiers. If it has more than 10 ingredients, avoid it.

Green Juice: the veggie content is much lower than many people think. A juice that is fruit-based will spike your blood sugar and you’ll have an energy crash afterwards, stimulating hunger.
