Show Notes:

In this episode we talk about mysterious aches and pains that seem to pop up as you get older (and how even Will Smith says he's in the worst shape of his life after quarantine). We also talk about the joys of connecting- or reconnecting- with people as we shift back toward spending time with friends in person again.
