Rank #1: 0120. Stop the vicious cycle! (악순환을 끊을 시간)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: I’ve been so forgetful these days. I write memos on my phone not to forget things, but then I forget the fact that I wrote them. I feel so dumb!
B: That happens. I sometimes blank out when I think about what I ate yesterday.
A: So do you? Man, we’re aging.
B: But you can improve your memory by stimulating your brain. I heard a good way is to do something you’ve never done before.
A: I wanna take a pottery class, but I’m not sure if I can make time for that.
B: Then, let me tell you a simple thing you can do right now: draw a rectangle with your right hand while drawing a triangle with your left hand.
A: Oh, it’s tougher than it sounds. Anything else I can try to boost my brain?
B: Yea. This article listed some basic exercises: “Get your Zs, make time for friends, keep stress in check, have a laugh, and eat healthy fats like omega-3s.”
A: It's not surprising why I have a bad memory. The funny thing is, the reason that I sleep less and rarely hang out with my friends is to save time and work better.
B: But then you feel tired, stressed out, and become less productive. It's time to stop this vicious cycle for yourself!

Rank #2: 0119. Jini wants to remain single. (비혼인게 어때서?)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: Did you hear Miyong is getting married next month?
B: Yea, I got her invitation. I guess her best friend Jini will catch the bouquet. Or, did Jini already get married?
A: No. Jini wants to remain single, but she’s having a hard time because her parents keep pressuring her to tie the knot.
B: Why? What’s wrong with being unmarried?
A: The conventional stereotypes are to blame: People think you need to marry someone at an appropriate age, and a married couple should have babies to carry on a family blood line.
B: But those clichés about marriage don’t guarantee one’s happiness.
A: Right. Some people think we’re living in a society where marriage isn’t necessary anymore. That’s why we see fewer marriages year after year.
B: Even after getting married, having a baby is one’s option, not a must. You can’t measure one’s happiness based on whether one has a child.
A: True. I think you have the right to choose your own answer about marriage as long as you take proper responsibility for your choice.

Rank #3: 0118. Growing fresh air (신선한 공기 키우기)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: That’s a cute little cactus! Isn’t that good for reducing monitor radiation?
B: With this single tiny cactus? That’s overambitious. As far as I know, the cactus should be at least 4 times as big as your monitor to have an effect.
A: Really? That’s disappointing. But still, it’s a good decoration.
B: It’s more than a decoration. Just looking at it helps me relieve stress, and it’s really exciting to see the plant growing.
A: Isn’t it a lot of work, though?
B: I guess it depends on the type of plants. For example, I water and wipe leaves of my Areca palm tree once a week.
A: That’s not too bad if you can make the most out of the tree. Do you think it’s beneficial?
B: I heard the Areca makes fresh air by removing carbon dioxide, and it keeps humidity. But again, one tree is not enough to have dramatic effects.
A: Okay. I’ll grow several trees.
B: Good luck! I’m sure your time and money will be worth it.

Rank #4: 0117. Rejection Therapy (왜 싫다고 말을 못 해!)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: Hey, do you think you can ask for a burger refill at a restaurant?
B: What? Is that possible?
A: No, that's why I'm asking. I just watched this guy named Jia Jiang on YouTube,
and he asked for a burger refill.
B: So? did he get it?
A: Of course not, which actually was the point: getting rejected.
He made many other requests to strangers and mostly got turned down.
B: Why is he trying to get rejected?
A: Jiang said his goal was to desensitize himself to the pain and shame of rejection and overcome his fear.
B: Oh, I can understand him to some extent. I used to be afraid of saying “no” to others,
but got over it after realizing nothing terrible happens when I reject a request.
A: I think both rejecting and being rejected are just parts of everyday life.
You might need to train yourself, though, like Jiang.
B: I wanna train myself by doing this: sleeping at a mattress store.

Rank #5: 0116. I want Sonny on my team(팀플레이어 손흥민)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: Did you watch Sonny’s game last night?
B: Of course, that’s why I’m half asleep now.
A: Me too. I couldn’t take my eyes off Sonny. He’s such a gifted player.
B: Yea, I think he can definitely be a role model for youth players.
A: He seems very sociable, too. It was interesting to see him shaking hands with all of his teammates in a different way.
B: That’s another skill he has. I don’t think I could mingle well with foreign teammates if I were the only Korean on my team.
A: That reminds me of my team. Our teamwork sucks.
B: Hey, be positive and try to bond with your teammates. I think Sonny’s handshake skills can help.
A: I wish my company had an open-minded atmosphere like Sonny’s team.

Rank #6: 0115. Nuisance in library (도서관 안의 민폐)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: Hey, is my breathing too loud?
B: Huh? Who cares about your breathing?
A: Somebody in the library put a sticky note on my desk. “Please breathe softer.”
B: Oh, you were in the library. People can be very sensitive in such a quiet place.
A: I didn’t think I was being a nuisance, though.
I was trying my best not to get on others’ nerves, but complainers DO exist.
B: Well, you might get a romantic note sometime soon.
A: In that heartless place? No.
B: Maybe you’ll get a note on a canned coffee, saying “I see you’re not feeling very well. Why don’t you get a long, long rest AT HOME? XOXO”
A: Oh, don’t be sarcastic.

Rank #7: 0114. Changing Trends for ‘Likes’ (‘좋아요’를 부르는 포스팅)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: You’re totally trapped in Instagram. Stop using the phone and eat!
B: Hold on. I just need a few more hashtags. I’m sure my followers are gonna like this place.
A: Isn’t it kinda shabby, though? People usually “like” fancy places.
B: That’s an old story. Many people are getting sick of seeing meaningless pictures just for showing off.
A: Well, I’m one of them. Some attention seekers’ phony pictures make me cringe.
B: Yea, I guess that’s why postings that represent one’s true tastes, stories, or philosophy get attention these days, just like mine on unknown brands or local stores with their own styles.
A: I respect your taste and philosophy, but can you finish your pizza first to show the chef respect? It’s getting cold.
B: Done. I’ve already got two likes!

Rank #8: 0113. YOLO (한번 뿐인 삶)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: Hey, I heard today is your last day. Are you moving to another company?
B: Yea, I'm quitting, but I’m not going to another company.
A: Oh, really? Can I ask what your plan is?
B: I don't have a specific plan yet, but I'm going on a round-the-world-trip for sure.
A: Wow! That's awesome, but why now? Aren't you getting promoted soon?
B: True, but traveling around the world has been on my bucket list for a long time. And I feel like I won’t be able to do it if I don't quit now. You know, I've worked hard for the past 11 years.
A: I hear you. But still, it's a big decision.
B: I know, but from now on, I wanna live my life to the fullest. YOLO, man.
A: Well, it’s your life after all. I’ll be rooting for you.

Rank #9: 0112. Becoming a Minimalist (미니멀리스트 되기)

Podcast cover
Read more
A: So, this is your new place! I like the big window! And..It's very clean.. way too clean...! You've only got this foldable table in the living room?
B: Yeah, I got rid of most of my stuff before moving.
A: Seriously? Including your sofa and bed? 
B: Yea, I realized I can live without them. I'm trying to live like a minimalist.
A: Wow, you've changed a lot! I envied the ornaments and furniture at your old place!
B: Most of them were actually unnecessary. Once I started owning less though, the things I own brought me more joy. Isn't it a cool paradox?
A: Really? What about all these things jammed in the utility room?
B: uhh… I’m keeping them in case I go back to my original lifestyle. 
A: I knew it!
