PRESS RELEASE — July 30, 2019

Starting July 30, test your moral compass with Earios co-founders, Maria Blasucci and Amanda Lund, when they return with a new season of​ ​The Big Ones,​ a show that asks life’s big questions like, would you let your daughter date a robot?, and in the process of answering makes you look deep deep deep withinside yourself™.

Special guests join Amanda and Maria each week to thoughtfully discuss big questions that range from relationship problems, to historical decisions, to brain busting moral choices through a signature mix of comedy, social commentary, philosophizing and absurdism. ​After talking it out and an immersive improv experience, everyone shares their conclusions. Once The Big One is resolved, Amanda and Maria take on a listener’s Big One. Past guests have included Paul F. Tompkins, Kate Berlant, Sarah Levy, Timothy Simons and more!

“We never shy away from talking about things we don’t understand or life’s unexpected moral quandaries. A little humor, straight talk and friendship goes a long way in making the world a less lonely place in tough situations,” say Amanda and Maria. “We hope you have fun joining us this season on our new network as we get to the bottom of some serious and not so serious questions.”
