In this week’s episode, Mallory and Tamu explore ways to get over a relationship by watching 2001’s Someone Like You and discussing local Minnesota rapper Dessa’s experiment with neuroscience to pinpoint the parts of her brain where emotions of love were triggered by her former lover with whom she was broken up with (but he was still in her life) for 12 years. She then used neurofeedback to train her brain to work differently.
Moral to the Story: With practice, we can find our very own Hugh Jackman.
Other Fun Topics Discussed:
Tamu is still butt hurt about not getting listener emails at firstname.lastname@example.org
Dessa’s new album Chime and her older songs.
Dessa would have had her songs added to Tamu’s Banned@Love playlist.
