Then we get PUMPED talking about strength-building and conditioning aids like… Pokémon stickers? Negatively charged water? Deer-antler spray?? Treadmill-desks??? What is this world coming to? And why is it trying to take a short-cut to get there? We wrap up with discussion about how there just aren’t short-cuts for some problems – like mid-life crises.
