Once Upon an Integer Bequethal

The Nose Knows Anxiety

Get ready, because VistaGen Therapeutics (a pharma company straight out of a Michael Crichton book), is on the verge of helping you out of your social anxiety with the same tech used to fight your pollen allergy. Right now it’s called PH94B, so we’re not talking about one of those sexy-sexy Sunday morning TV ad names quite yet, but it’s coming… and we’re here for it.

Beware the things we’re handing down

Pete’s getting itchy about passing his anxiety on to his kids. Oh, wait, wrong tense. Pete has gotten itchy BECAUSE he passed his anxiety on to his kids? Well, that might be debatable, but the fear of it is very much present so we’re talking all about this very special kind of inheritance this week.

Oh, and if you do have kids, read this about two very special words: Be Careful.

The Thirteens

Tommy talks 13s this week thanks to a listener submission and along the way we listen to a great tune from Les Brown, Triskaidekaphobia. While you’re listening, we take a world tour of superstitious numbers. Every country seems to have one, but none have such a great song, we imagine.

This week’s tune is Coming Back Home from WEARETHEGOOD and Scootie Wop. You can check it out by following our playlist on Spotify or Apple Music.

Welcome to All The Feelings: A sometimes-funny podcast about being human.

Every week hosts Tommy Metz III and Pete Wright each drag one of their big feels into the light to share it, learn about it, and hopefully laugh about it with all of you.
