Who are these emotional vampires that suck our souls and leave us confused and sad? Or just that person who seems to post the same picture of themselves over and over on social media? They are called narcissists. My friend Leslie joins me to discuss the fun of dealing with these personality types.

Who the hell are you? What is this thing we call the self? Philosophy has some answers, but so does Sam Harris. Also, in all the books on self improvement I've read, they say you must get over yourself to be successful and happy. So which is it? Do I find myself or get over it to be happy?

Ressentiment (French pronunciation: ​[rəsɑ̃timɑ̃]) Nietzsche used this term as the underlying principle to the Geneology of Morals. When one group considers themselves victims of another and justifies their weakness or inactivity because of ressentiment. Amber Tozer and I discuss this idea in it's applications to every day life.

I read a very touching email from a recovering heroin addict and the dicussion on shame begins! Andy Haynes is back to share his stories and his refreshing honesty. We discuss ideas from Dr. Brene Brown's book "I Thought It Was Just Me.' You'll be surprised at how many things you think are bizarre and shameful are totally normal.

We've explored the idea of happiness on this show before, but not with a super happy person like Steve Simone. Steve is probably THE happiest guy I know and from what I can tell - it's real. But HOW? What are his secrets? He's here to tell you all about the secrets to happiness.

One of my favorite Joy Division songs and also a part of human existence. The Duggars are a result of isolation and I want to take credit for hating them way before anyone else did. In this episode I discuss social and emotional isolation.

Expect the unexpected and whenever possible BE the unexpected. I read that in a Kurt Vonnegut book once, and it has stuck with me for years. What does that mean and how can it help us?

How does your memory affect your behavior in the present? Kevin Christy and I discuss how trauma can rewire your brain and cause you massive unhappiness in the present. Also, are some memories helpful in every day functioning? How do we "rewire" the mind to deal with new experiences? Are we neuroscientists? No, just a couple of comedians getting deep on it, bro.

Why do we think we can control anything? How much of life do we even control really? Why do I feel the need to make sure my dog eats and poops regularly or it will be the end of the world? Also, wouldn't Blythe Danner make a great mom for me?
