It's another "What We Learned" Friday here on the Drive-Home!

This week on the show, Kara had "Beauty and the Beast" fever. The animated classic was one of Kara's favorite childhood movies, so she went to go see the new adaptation last weekend. We had some fun chatting about how Kara got "Tale as Old as Time" stuck in my head (thanks a lot for that, by the way), and how she had to explain to her friend that she has no problem seeing a good movie multiple times. 

But we also recognize that there's controversy surrounding the movie. So, we decided to talk about that too!

We talked about how one mom decided to approach the movie with her kids, and some perhaps surprising takeaways Kara had from the film. If you missed any of it, take a listen below!

Other stuff we learned this week:

Ducks and Horses – Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses? It's a tough question, but it's worth contemplating. Ok, maybe it isn't.

Kara's Pick Falls Short – Last year Kara successfully predicted the the winner of the NCAA tournament, despite self-admittedly knowing (and caring) very little about men's college basketball. This year she picked Arizona, who unfortunately lost by 2 points to Xavier in the Sweet Sixteen. Even the experts get it wrong sometimes!

Facebook Makes You Sad – According to research, using Facebook results in lower life satisfaction. But, there are some things we can do to combat the negative effects of social media!

Boaty McBoatface – The Drive-Home's favorite boat (shh, yes we know it's actually a submarine) is preparing for its first mission into "some of the deepest and coldest abyssal ocean waters on earth." Sounds scary! But if any boat is up to the task, it's Boaty McBoatface.
