Matt and Destin introduce the world to "The Fifty-Fifty" and respond to the first wave of listener feedback... which makes for a great opportunity to unpack the nature of feedback in general; giving it, receiving it, and the dangers associated with over-responding to as well as under-delivering on feedback given to us by loved ones.
