Nietzsche thought forgetfulness was essential to human existence, without it "there could be no happiness, cheerfulness, hope, pride, immediacy..." Forgetfulness is similar to forgiveness in that it requires we let go of negative emotions that harm us. But how does one forgive the unforgivable? Nazis? Child molesters? Do they deserve forgiveness? My guest Paul Gilmartin of the Mental Illness Happy Hour discusses how he forgave his abusive mother. Brutally honest and touching, you will love this episode.

As the great Philosopher/Poet Morrissey said "Rejection is one thing, but rejection from a fool is cruel". Rejection sucks all around - from romantic ones to professional ones. Alison Rosen and I discuss the ins and outs of rejection. Why does is suck so bad and what to do about it?

Back from the holiday and ready to start small - does God exist? Pat Keane and I discuss one of the biggest questions in philosophy. We cover a few of the Five Ways to prove the existence of God by Thomas Aquinas. Never heard of St. Thomas Aquinas? Well, he's known as the "Party Philosopher". Not really, but he wrote some important stuff and we go over it. Also, why is God so scary sometimes in the bible? He sure has a temper...

This episode I talk to the love of my life, comedian and husband Tom Segura. We usually talk about farts while podcasting, so this is a little bit weird. We discuss the idea of the Other and whether or not you can really know another person. I mean, I think I know Tom, but he really enjoys shows about murder...We explore Martin Buber's idea of I-Thou vs I-It relationships. What does it mean to really love someone? Does it mean you love them even when you don't feel like it? Sometimes...You'll just have to listen to find out.

I don't know anyone who openly admits to loving the Kardashians. If everyone hates them, who in the hell is watching all their shows? In this episode we discuss fame and celebrity. Who deserves to be celebrated? Why do we hate certain celebrities? Is it possible that famous people serve a function in society other than just annoying the hell out of us? Why can't I stop watching (and being on) reality shows? My buddy Nick Youssef and I get into all of it.
