A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording): 

Is binge watcHing “House of Cards” killing you? According to a nEw study from the UniversIty of Texas, as reported by Rare.us, “people who binge-watch their favorite TV Series tEnd to be depressed, loNely and unable to control their impulses.” The study stated that Binge watching could lead to “obEsity and other health problems.” I don’t care what the study said, because if you binge watch “BReaking Bad” on Netflix, you won’t be depressed, but instead you’ll be excited to see what happens next to Walter White. However, you will lose sleep because you’ll wanna watch just one more episode. TakinG breaks while streaming your favorite show is one bipartisan plan that even Frank Underwood would agree with the Republicans on. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
