Show Notes for Thursday, November 02, 2023


Dear John,

My wife and I have been happily married for almost 20 years. One of her best friends is going through a messy divorce. I was never a fan of her friend's husband. He was always kind of rude to everyone. I'm surprised she put up with it for over a decade. My concern is this. My wife is trying to be a good friend, so she's the shoulder that her friend is crying on. That's OK, but it seems like they're going out almost every night lately. I've asked my wife to just invite her friend here, but she says she's hoping to “meet someone” and my wife is being here “wing man” at the bar. I really don't like that. I'm not the jealous type, but I hate the idea of my wife going to the bar to talk to single men in hopes to find someone for her friend. I'd rather help her get over the last relationship and let her wok on herself a little before diving head-first into another relationship. I heard you taking about this on the radio today, that's what prompted me to write the letter. You mentioned that a poll suggests that you are 75% more likely to divorce if one of your friends is also divorced. That concerns me. I'm not wanting a divorce at all, but I'm afraid that she might enjoy the freedom she's having with her newly single friend. What do I do in this situation?

What would you most like to have passed on to you by a loved one? A new survey showed some surprising results. Apparently, we’d rather inherit a pet from a loved one than a car, according to a poll of 2,000 US adults. The top assets respondents said they’d like to inherit one day are a house or property (65%), followed by their 4-legged friends (59%) . . . and, of course, money (58%). A little more than half (53%) said they’d like to receive collectibles or a car. The results also showed that respondents would prefer valuable heirlooms over sentimental ones (44% vs 27%).

The USFDA is weighing approval for the FluMist nasal spray vaccine. If approved, next year, Americans could self-administer the vaccine at home. The vaccine, the only nasal spray option against flu, has been on the market in the US since 2003. AstraZeneca has asked the FDA to allow adults ages 18-49 to be able to give themselves the vaccine, or administer it to children as young as age 2.

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood have teamed up with Homes For Our Troops for this year’s online auction raising funds for injured vets. So, if you’ve ever wanted to play golf with Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, Zoom with Bryan Cranston or visit Ben Stiller on a Hollywood set, here’s your chance. You could also grab lunch in NYC with Lou Diamond Phillips, have Michael Connelly write your name in his next novel or get tickets to Adam Sandler’s show and meet him. Hollywood memorabilia being auctioned for the cause includes a Bon Jovi autographed guitar, A Mark Hamil-signed Luke Skywalker figurine and a Chris Evans personalized video message — with an autographed ‘Captain America’ shield and movie poster. This is the 7th year of the Veterans Day Celebrity Auction, and bidding starts this Friday. LINK:

Disney’s going back to the drawing board for its “Snow White” reboot. The company has just delayed its release by a year, and is now promising to use actual dwarves — albeit fake ones. Instead of coming out in March, the Snow White live-action film is now slated for Spring 2025. The first official publicity pic Disney released amid the delay news shows star Rachel Zegler surrounded by the Seven Dwarfs – all of them completely animated with CGI — and they’re ‘little’, just like in the original film. Earlier this year, leaked set photos showed 6 actors of typical height depicting the dwarves, and only 1 little person — a decision that caused a firestorm online.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A man has been arrested in Spain after apparently faking heart attacks at restaurants around the country — to avoid paying the bill. Reportedly, after ordering food and drinks, he would put on an outrageous theatrical performance, clutching his chest and pretending to faint on the floor. The scam worked like a charm until one establishment owner saw right through the man’s act and started showing other local restaurants photos of him, and warning them not to fall for his heart-attack routine.
