Episode #8×37: So Fresh, So Clean, So Healthy

  • Welcome back to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and real talk.
  • Andrew does his best impression of Westeros to start the show off, commemorating the ridiculously dark lighting present in the latest episode of House of the Dragon.
  • Don’t forget to pledge at the $10 BAE level over on our Patreon by 10/20/22 to receive this year’s #Millennial Adulting Planner!
  • In light of Grammy Award winning West Coast rapper Coolio’s death last week, we visit his legacy, learn more about how ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ earned its spot in the cultural zeitgeist, and reflect on rap’s crucial influences on our culture.
  • Speaking of 90’s nostalgia, Andrew is getting bummed out with more and more dark details about our favorite kids shows coming to light.
  • “I love you… you hate me….” did anyone else have threats of violence and ruthless rumors on their Barney bingo card?
  • No matter your take on 90s nostalgia, we can all agree the sun baby from Teletubbies was and remains nightmare fuel.
  • We’re joined this week by listener Nicki, who is a fellow with the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health. She joins us this week to talk about a common anxiety: the importance of oral health and going to the dentist.
  • She reminds us it doesn’t need to be scary! Periodontal disease (aka gum disease) is extremely preventable, treatable, and curable with proper testing and treatment.
  • Oral health is important for your teeth, but don’t forget that the mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body. Establishing an oral health routine can help prevent other illnesses down the line!
  • What about the over the counter toothpastes, flosses, and mouth washes most of us are using? Nicki recommends Spry, Bite, and StellaLife instead.
  • You can find Nicki on Instagram and see her business Redwood Designs.
  • It’s a mixed bag of recommendations this week: the gay rom-com BROS (Andrew), Slutty Vegan (Laura), Netflix’s ‘Hip Hop Evolution’ (Pam), and Trixie Motel on Discovery+ (Nicki).

And in this week’s installment of After Dark, available to all Patrons:

  • We did 90s nostalgia in the main show, now it’s time for our own 90s cringe stories.
  • How to dump a girl in 3 days, a Girl Scouts assignment gone amiss, and telling your crush that no, you DEFINITELY don’t have a crush on them anymore.
  • You thought finding out Santa wasn’t real was bad? Just wait until Andrew shares his trauma around Carmen Sandiego.
