We're BAAACK! What was originally intended to be a short break turned out to be a much longer one, and for that we apologize, but we're excited to start another season of FND!
We actually recorded this episode quite a while back, so long ago that Tom Brady had announcement his retirement AND came out of retirement but we think the underlying topic of putting celebrities/public figured on a moral pedestal is still relevant anyway.
Hope you enjoy, tell us what you think and if you have topic suggestions!

Asian men have always had to fight against Hollywood's portrayal of them - usually as the nerdy, socially awkward type.

Mia's playing a moderator here to get their hot takes on this very, serious, issue.

If you, like Mia, have recently been down the rabbit hole of YouTube reccommended videos of people declaring that they quit their jobs, you might at first find it intriguing. You then read endless articles being written about "The Great Resignation". What's going on? Am I missing out on something here? Don't worry, your next-door friends are always here to lend an ear if you feel like pouring your heart out about how work (or school!) has been overwhelming and the feeling of burnout.

What was your earliest memory? Are you in the "HOW could I not remember this??" or rather the "I remember nothing" camp? On this episode we take a jog down memory lane on what we remember and how memories can be sources of drive, motivation, or doubt. Most importantly, if you're getting married soon, congrats(!!) and make sure to book Thomas to give a toast at your wedding :) And as always, if you have a burning question, find us here: Email: [email protected] IG: @frndsnextdoor Dan: @therealdanchen Mia: @msmiaaa Thomas: @nomastmas ...
