Episode 121: Are We Winning, America?

I go into the weeds this time with some pieces related to psychology: First a commentary on the General psychosis of Americans; reporting on a fresh paper on depression’s causes and solutions; then another paper challenging the underlying logic of evolutionary psychology. Tn the 2nd Half I return to the counterculture of aro-aces and platonic coupling. But I also cover polling revealing something surprising about singles. All the while I remember why I’m talking about any of this with a note about if this is the ‘right’ kind of feminism.
