STRANGE ADDICTIONS: drinking wee, bee stings, eating disorders, pica, tardigrades, fecal transplants & more!

The giggling gerties are back on Eavesdroppin’ and this week the girls talk weird addictions… Not before chatting about bits n’ bobs, including a news story from Tameera the Modern Mystic about moss piglets on the moon…

So let’s jump right in… What is a tardigrade and why does it look like a poo on legs? Who is Neil the Scientist? What is a Sea Monkey? Why are Iced VoVos mentioned? Do Geordie & Michelle know what a trident is ??

And now we get to the meat of the ep: weird addictions… This week we look at Carrie from Colorado who is addicted to drinking her own piss… Why would anyone drink their own wee? Would you bathe your eyes in wee? Can piss make your skin look younger? What is a neti pot? What is nasal drinking? Can drinking wee cure cancer? Is urine therapy actually a thing? Is wee a miracle cure for everything? Is piss actually medicine? Can a poo transplant save lives?

Then we move on to pica, an eating disorder common among pregnant women and children who crave – and eat – things that aren’t food. Sand, mud, crayons, rubber, chalk, detergent, soap, sponges, cigarette butts, paint… that’s pica. Listen to learn more and to find out who ate foam mattresses as a child…

Then there’s the story of Casie from Tennessee… she’s addicted to carrying round the ashes of her dead husband… to the supermarket, out to dinner, to the movies, to bed… or is she addicted to something more? And then we wrap up the ep with a woman addicted to bee stings. Yes, Margaret from Kentucky is addicted to stinging herself with bees, more than 100 times a week, despite the fact she knows the bee will die. Don’t drink your juice while listening to the episode and keep Eavesdroppin’…..
