From daily walks to sourdough starters, many of us found new ways to have fun and stay sane during the pandemic. For some, a new trend has plenty of... appeal.

In this Snacktime episode, Ben tells Amory about a community mixing personal hygiene and a daily dose of Vitamin C. Then, listen to the story of how one Reddit user's overthinking ended up being just the right amount.

Thanks to Sumit for this week's featured art,"Oranges." You can find more of their work on their website or on Instagram @design.sumitgill.
