Christina P. is a comedian with a BA in Philosophy who loves getting deep on all sorts of subjects - cults, buddhism, the meaning of life, music, relationships, parenting, pop culture and farts. TDB covers all the topics you never talk about in every day life - but should. Quit your job, turn off the TV, join an ashram. Let's get weird. It's time for That's Deep Bro.

Mellisa Villasenor and I discuss self and how to find it. Also, why it's AWFUL to compare yourself to others. Melissa is an amazing impressionist and comic and I know you'll adore her as I do.

This episode covers the Madonna of the philosophy world - Frederich Nietzsche. He's popular, but often misunderstood and one of my absolute favorites. I cover the Genealogy of Morals and the idea of slave and master morality, the will to power and maybe a little ubermensch, too.

In this episode Dhaya and I go deep on compassion, anger and relinquishing control - the holy trinity of human drama. She's hot off a meditation retreat and I have so many questions for her - like how annoying was everyone else on the retreat? How do you deal with your own thoughts for days on end with no interruption?  Dhaya is a gracious and enlightening guest. I know you'll love her.

Stranded in a snow storm in a hotel room in DC, I cover Phenomenology, Husserl and Merleau-Ponty. Phenomenology is the study of subjective perception and Merleau-Ponty grounds perception in the body and in the "flesh of the world". How French is that? I also look at what it means to "stay present". It's the buzz phrase of the time, but how in the hell does anybody really do that? Also, what does this have to do with Pippi Longstocking? All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy...listen to my lunatic snowed-in ramblings.

The Full Charge and I discuss the documentary "All this Mayhem" about the skateboarding champs Ben and Tas Pappas. Their descent into drugs, prison and chaos make one wonder if you can truly change your fate. They were born into a rough life and tried as hard as they could to escape it. But can you really change your destiny? Maybe, but shit ain't easy...
