Recent polling reveals that about 41% of people care a medium amount about their birthdays. So where does this leave the 23% of people who are indifferent to their birthdays? And the 23% of people who care a huge amount about their birthdays? We get into all of it in this episode. We discuss our own feelings about birthdays and posit some theories about why birthdays can be such a polarizing subject, and get into the often-divisive topic of the “birthday adult.”

Also, check out two previous episodes where we touched on some birthday- and birthday celebration-related topics: Great Gifts and How to Give Them (Episode 5) and Staying In and Getting Through It (Episode 4).
