That's Deep Bro
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.

This week I swam in my gym pool asking myself this question. And while I don't have the answer yet, I hope I'm moving in the right direction. Also, why was Grease the worst movie to show little girls? Does Socrates have the answers with "Know Thyself?" or was he just really good in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure?

We lose people, things and situations every day. Grief is an ongoing part of life (Yay!)  My guest Kevin Christy lost his father in a hiking accident 7 years ago. How is he doing now and how does one deal with loss? Also, do you have any happy songs on your ipod? Does Kevin belong to the Bones Brigade? You bet.

In light of the recent Josh Duggar Ashley Madison scandal and Kanye West being a complete douschebag on the VMA's, I find myself asking "why bother being a good person when some people seem to opt out?" I explore this question using the philosophy of Oprah Magazine, Philosophy Now Magazine and the late great Wayne Dyer. Enjoy!

My friend Dave Reinitz and I discuss optimism and why bother trying to be an optimist? I mean wasn't Pollyana the most annoying person ever? Should we even want to have expectations and what is the value of having a positive attitude? Also, why does Dave hate Dick Cheney so much?

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?

In this episode my beloved, Tom Segura and I discuss what makes people successful and what seems to lead to failure. In all the books written about success, there seems to be a prevailing formula on how to get it. Bunz and I get deep on what these formulas are. Get your success jeans on, bros!

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.
