You might think this is the Cathleen Piazza episode. Well, it sort of is...but we're mainly here to talk about pica, its many functions, and how much of a Sherlock Holmes/Batman you need to be to come up with effective treatments for this significant problem. To discuss pica, we'll need to say the word "butt" a hundred times, dig into bad movie lore, and figure out just what an herbal cigarette is. Plus, Rob has an existential crisis about his podcasting ego and Jackie learns a new word. And we're still left with a million questions about pica treatment. Better listen to this episode, or you'll have a million and one.
