I don't know if you heard--Marijuana just got legalized in California--it's a pretty big deal, and it's cause for celebration for the legions of stoners who live in the state. Or is it? One of the biggest celebrations of this magical plant takes place every year on 4/20 just down the road from my house, at Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park. On this episode I spend the day at Hippie Hill, interviewing stoners, and investigating how the festival has changed since it started being regulated...

Is it harder for young people to find a committed partner? Is the next generation transforming courtship gender roles, or entrenching them in the online space?

On this episode, we meet Michael DeLucca, owner of my local bike shop, and local extraordinaire. Mike's lived in the city 60 years, knows everyone, and has an opinion on everything. Mike's a data guy--he's really into the numbers, so I figured if I researched and compiled some graphs to show him, maybe I could change his mind on some of his more controversial opinions. Join us in the workshop as we debate whether San Francisco is a prosperous place to live, whether there were more irish...

Oxytocin

11/10/2017
More
This week I examine the notion that online social interactions could be chemically as fulfilling as in-person interactions. It's been found that oxytocin (the "cuddle chemical") is released after social media use, but can that be believed? I battle with the internet and confer with Dr. Love to decipher the conflicting studies.
