Bethany is opening up our world to the weird and rare disease that causes frightening hallucinations: Charles Bonnet Syndrome. Specifically, she covers one really fascinating case where a man kept seeing the creepy girl from 'The Ring!' Then, Kathleen covers the topic of “invisible labor”: all of the work you do to hold life together, even though it doesn’t pay you a cent. How can you make sure you’re getting recognized, and that you’re recognizing the other people in your life in turn? Ya gotta eat your damn dinner, even if it's garbage gruel!
