    Inspired by a real life glitch-in-the-matrix moment via "The Lemon Video" on TikTok, Sarah brings us real moments that made people think, "Are we living in a simulation?". 

    Based off of the hit 1999 movie "The Matrix" in which the world was actually living within a computer simulation, we discuss not only real stories that people experienced but also the current science behind the possibility of living in a simulation AND what glitches would be and look like if that simulation were real!

    Take a break and listen to story time in the MATRIX!

    Brody bravely opens up about his and Holly's journey with infertility and what led them to IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). He talks about what IVF is, the costs, the hormones, the side effects, the mental load of such a journey and what he did and did not expect from this all-consuming time of life. 

    While many routes of IVF exist, we focus on the IVF journey of those who have unexplained infertility: "When infertile couples or individuals have undergone all appropriate tests and no cause for their infertility is found". So while some couples may not have viable sperm or eggs to contribute to IVF, this episode discusses the journey a couple may experience if you do have those two components to contribute but still struggle to conceive. 

    So many couples lives are upended by infertility. It is invasive and emotional and all-consuming of your time, energy and physical and emotional health. So take a listen and see what Brody has to say about staying hopeful through a decade of trying to conceive and how to keep your relationship strong as well. 

    To those trying to conceive...baby dust! We hope you get your rainbow baby!
