Ned and Meg discuss the various thematic elements of our multitudes of nervous breakdowns, be they big or small, exceptional or pedestrian. Themes include having shingles, caffeine induced nervous dysfunction, medical debt, disability, medical treatment abroad versus at home in the US of A, insurance, academia, drugs, wine culture and climate. Phew! You’ve been warned. We also throw in cake related nervous breakdowns just for funzies. We also coin a new term for seeing things, the verbs 'rodding and coning' (you’re welcome) and we offer two exceptional colors of the day which couldn’t be more on-theme for this podcast if we did them on purpose. Enjoy, and thanks for listening, wash your hands, don’t be a dick!
