Episode 60: Wasted Away Again in Peer Pressureville

Share

In episode 60 of the Constant Crisis News & Opinion self-help and humor podcast, Ham & Chuck celebrate the fact that, while America has Tebowing, a burgeoning marijuana industry and millions of lost shakers of salt, at least we don’t have eyeball licking and bagelheading. That honor belongs to Japan and we explain why. We also look at the societal and peer pressures that kids (and adults) feel and often succumb to, and what we need to do about it.
