Are you in danger? How much danger? How much are you willing to pay to be in less danger, and who’s cashing those cheques? Elizabeth and Karen tumble down the safety capitalism rabbit hole.
Here are some of the things we mentioned in this episode:
- Flare on TikTok and Instagram
- Mom Friend on TikTok
- The best slash proof bags can cost $169, and still might not meet your standards
- SafetyDrip on TikTok
- The Sarah Everard story
- The quest to de-hair the female body continues

What is That's a Thing?!?
A sometimes belated, already outdated guide to your teens, tweens and everything under 20. In each episode, Elizabeth, a teenager, explains a thing to Karen, her mother. And Karen tells Elizabeth how that thing relates to something she knows. Maybe.
