About Them's the Rules

Life is full of rules.

Them’s the Rules is a society and culture podcast trying to wrap its head around the perplexities of human behavior, one rule at a time. Laced with existential mirth, each episode explores the historical, cultural, and philosophical context of a different rule or system of rules, from our social institutions to our New Year’s resolutions and everything in-between. By exposing the universal fault lines that run beneath everything we do, Them’s the Rules offers a new way of engaging in conversations around culture, politics, and society.
