That's Deep Bro (comedy)
Christina Pazsitzky 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.

This episode didn't need a topic, it just needed Duncan Trussell. Professional mind-blower and joke teller, Duncan and I discuss everything. Is God a loving, benevolent force or an evil deceiver? Does evil even exist? Are there boundaries between people or are we essentially the same being? Do we have a soul? What about a self and a Self? Who the hell is Neem Karoli Baba and is how is he related to Adam Corrolla? Strap yourself into your spaceship, because we are about to blast off into the outer limits of space and time!

What is consciousness and can we access parts of our minds that we normally can't with the use of psychedelics? This episode we discuss the 1960's Harvard Psychologists Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert (Ram Dass) and their use of LSD to explore the mind. What is thought in the first place? Can we even know how we know? If I drop too much acid will I go insane and be convinced I'm an orange? My guest has done LSD about 50 times and can provide us some insight into the psychedelic world. She prefers to remain nameless and thus gainfully employed.

Greg Fitzsimmons and I explore the topic of happiness. Is happiness the best goal to have all the time? Probably not. What about money? Will that make you happy? I say yes, Greg says no. Are poor people happier than rich people? Do accomplishments make you happy? What’s up with the Germans? Why are they such philosophical bummers? All this and more on this episode of That’s Deep Bro.

By far one of my favorite topics in philosophy, the absurd. You know that whole "What's the point? What the f$%k am I doing all this for?" feeling. I'm sure Camus wouldn't define it that way, but that's absurdity. Matt Fulchiron and I get deep on feelings of the absurd, with some sprinkling of Existentialism. Where does one find meaning in a seemingly meaningless world? Ahhhh the French get deep like no other.

In this episode, my mystery guest and I discuss the topic of pornography. My guest, who prefers to remain anonymous, edited porn for 5 years and now that he’s out of the biz has some great stories to tell. From the smells to the squirts, he shares it all. We discuss the philosophical aspects of porn, namely degradation vs. liberation, the rise and acceptance of raunch culture and why we secretly hate porn stars. Now that porn is more accessible than ever, is it necessarily a good thing and why do I feel profound shame after watching it? Maybe that’s just my problem…enjoy this episode.

This isn't your mother's podcast. The first episode of That's Deep, Bro covers some ideas found in Buddhism like non-attachment, suffering and what it means to be happy. With my guest Jenny Pentland, we explore the idea of why as humans we are never really happy from external things and how we can achieve a sense of well being in a world that is always changing. And Jenny knows a little sumpin' sumpin' about change. The daughter of legendary comedian Roseanne Barr, Jenny has lived thru many changes and bizarro experiences that would break anyone's spirit. Thankfully, Jenny has a fantastic perspective on life and graciously shares it with us. Have you ever found out your parents were getting a divorce from reading the tabloids? Ever had Tom Arnold as a stepdad or spent 5 years in various mental institutions? Jenny has and surprisingly has hilarious stories about all of it. You'll laugh, you'll cry (we did a few times, no really) and at the end you'll say "woah, that's deep, bro."
