We discuss our first impressions of a brand-new watch brand called Parchie, which offers dive watches specifically made for kids. Then we talk about the surprise 2022 re-launch of the cult classic Acura Integra and what it means for its segment–and for the relationship between new cars and nostalgia. Finally, we address a Vox article that details the sizable (and quite ironic) carbon impact of houseplants.
