Episode #9×32: Police Using Drones For Surveillance, Noise Pollution, What To Do About High Home Interest Rates?

  • Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and real talk!
  • We kick off the show on a somber note as another one of Andrew’s death predictions comes true. The hosts reminisce on the legacy of legendary ‘The Price Is Right’ host Bob Barker, as well as recently passed artists Jimmy Buffet, and Smash Mouth’s Steve Harwell.
  • The drones are coming– at least in New York. The NYPD is officially using surveillance drones to monitor large, outdoor events.
  • If you’re worried about how surveillance drones flying overhead might affect your privacy, you’re not the only one! The hosts weigh in on whether or not they trust law enforcement departments with this new surveillance technology.
  • America is getting loud no matter where you live, and new research now proves that high levels of noise pollution could come with some pretty big health risks.
  • Andrew shares his concerns over living in a developing neighborhood with frequent construction noise.
  • Pam and Laura ruminate over whether or not they’re worried about hearing loss as they age.
  • Home interest rates are high, so when should you buy? Unfortunately, the answer doesn’t seem so clear cut.
  • If you’re feeling mortgage rate envy, you’re not alone! (But that doesn’t seem to be a problem for Andrew and Laura. Both are locked in to some pretty sexy interest rates!)
  • Laura shares how having student loans affected her as a first time home buyer.
  • This week’s recommendations are geared toward enriching your mind and body! CeeCee’s Closet sleep Bonnets (Pam), CeeCee’s Closet African exfoliation net (Laura), and ‘Fourth Wing’ by Rebecca Yarros (Andrew).
