THIS EPISODE: Meet a girl who is terrified by Tim Hawkins.
Plus, Peaches and I discuss the sinister evil that is Multi-Level
Marketing and the impact it is having on stupid people.
I catch a ride from the airport from a young lady who is
afraid of Tim Hawkins. I'll try to help her deal with this unusual
Peaches sets me straight on the difference between leggings
and Spanx. I'm not sure she's correct but I don't have data to
refute her. The entire concept of tight undergarments seems
dishonest to me.
The multi-level marketing phenomena is apparently
destroying the finances AND the spiritual welfare of western
culture. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I don't think so. The Peaches
reads an article from a hapless woman who has been victimized by
the promise of profits.

because...it's difficult to earn a lot of money PERIOD. It may not
be because MLM is evil...but let's just assume it is.
It seems that good business practice is important, even if

I talk a little bit about a pair of marooned women who smoked

There are some people who believe that wealth has NOTHING to
do with activities. Some people believe that money falls out of the
sky randomly. These people get mad at the universe (or "rich
people") because they're horrible managers of money.
I can't figure out why drug dealers seem to live in slums when
drugs bring in A LOT of money.
Then I tell a story about the time I quit my job. I'm not
telling the story to make you think I'm awesome, Pkarlgh. I'm just
telling you what tends to happen when you have a good work ethic.
Peaches explains why women are not good employees. (If you
aren't totally insulted, I think you'll agree with what she says.)
If you work at Google, you might disagree.
Priorities matter. You can be rich if you prioritize it, but
it's going to cost you something.
Peaches explains how insurance works to Cami (who is 6 years
Then I check back with the girl who is afraid of Tim to find
out if she has conquered her fears after actually meeting
