After 2 1/2 years, Help Wanted calls it quits. Valerie and Reggie share their favorite moments, why it's okay to end something even when nothing sucks, and what they've learned from the podcast. They leave the door open to possibly doing future episodes if there's a reason and schedules allow. In the mean time, it was a blast. Thanks for listening, vageenas!
Wyatt Tall joins Help Wanted again! This time to talk about professional cuddling and touch starvation, which is an actual, real-life problem. There's a whole industry of professional cuddlers who some enlist to eliminate their skin hunger. Skin hunger is also a real life thing that sounds awful. We talk about how these ideas relate to loneliness, how we feel about cuddling, and Reggie coins the term "emotional jazz hands," which is fun. Plus Wyatt isn't really a fire extinguisher kinda guy, and Valerie and Reggie are binge eating pretzel bread and cookie butter. This episode is sponsored by Hunter boots and high school Rodan + Fields salespeople.
