    That is not a Garbage Pail kid, that is the opera singer from a Bugs Bunny Cartoon.

      Yeah no, they talked about the Trump/Bugs picture separately I’m listening now. I think for some reason the garbage pail kid image didn’t post or isn’t showing, but they talked about the bugs thing at the beginning of the emails and didn’t talk about the garbage pail kid card till much later so I’m thinking they are separate images and we are missing one.

    Hi guys, really enjoyed these episodes as they touch on my professional work as a problematic substance use policy analyst. One question: you mentioned an article which argued that susceptibility to dopamine rewards could be an evolutionary advantage — I don’t see the link to that in your show notes, but I’m very interested to read it. Could you please post a link? Thanks!
