Sound of Sanity discusses the Japanese practice of renting family members for special (and not so special occasions), along with commentary on community, false intimacy, and so much more.

Show Notes

Per this article in The New Yorker, Japan has a thriving rent-a-family industry. Lonely widowers can rent woman to act as their wives for an afternoon, women can rent boyfriends or fiances to appease their parents, and more. Our heroes discuss this, along with the myriad of ways we avoid true intimacy here in the good ol' US of A.
