Episode #8×21: Coffee Addictions Pay Off, Johnny Depp v Amber Heard Reactions, Saving Less and Living More

  • A new study about coffee suggests that drinking moderate amounts of coffee may decrease chances of death. Today we learned our panel must be immortal!
  • We know inflation is bad, but authors need to live too! Stop returning ebooks on Amazon y’all.
  • Why are some consumers treating Amazon like a library? Some authors end up owing Amazon money due to consumers purchasing and returning ebooks.
  • When is it justified to seek a refund? Are there any cases in which we would absolutely never request one?
  • Johnny Depp won his defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard last week, and the internet really showed its ugly side during these proceedings.
  • Although Depp previously lost a libel case in the UK, the court of public opinion has turned this into an all or nothing issue, eliminating any room for a nuanced conversation.
  • Does this case represent backlash to #MeToo, or an expansion of its umbrella to include all victims of abuse?
  • How will we approach abuse allegations in the future, based on this case?
  • Some adults under 35 are throwing financial caution to the wind since the world’s a mess – is this a good idea?
  • This week’s recommendations came up naturally during our recording: try no sugar in your coffee (Andrew), Stitch Fix (Laura), and Nutpods Coffee Creamer (Pam).
