TRC #265: Motivated Numeracy + Does Cat Purring Heal Bones? + Chinese Food Hunger After an Hour
The gang is joined by former TRC host Jon Abrams for a doozy of an episode. Darren leads things off by discussing a recent paper on motivated numeracy. Adam then looks into if cat purring heals bones. Jon closes things out by challenging Adam’s claim from a previous episode that when you eat Chinese food you will get hungry again in an hour. Elan and Pat do their best to contribute. Enjoy!
