Growing up: it used to be as easy as drinking your milk, preparing to work 1 job for 40 years, and not misusing the height of telecommunications (a landline phone). Now that all of that has changed (side note: turns out milk isn't all that good for you), what should we be teaching the new generation of kids about life on Earth? Also, hold on, we've all seen the Internet. Maybe the adult generation is the one that actually needs the advice.
On this week's podcast, Alex Schmidt is joined by Kristi Harrison (Cracked) and Andrew Ti ("Yo Is This Racist") to explore every lesson that ought to join the pantheon of Things We Tell Kids About Life. Find out why you might not be apologizing very well, why your retirement plan might be a mirage from the 80s, and most astonishingly, why Kim Kardashian and Guy Fieri are f***ing awesome.
