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.

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?

In this episode I address a listener email asking if we can ever truly know our purpose in life. That's a deep question but luckily, this bro has some ideas.

Feminism. It's complicated being a lady these days. I try to sort it all out. When in doubt, ask what would Shirley Manson do?

A topic very near and dear to comics and philosophers - depression. Nietzsche, Heidegger, Foucault, Hume, John Stuart Mill all had nervous breakdowns. Tom and I discuss the types of depression one goes thru and what you can do to make it suck less.

In this episode I discuss what it means to take a break and just be a person. I took 4 days off and realized that leisure time is something Americans hate. Why is that? Jean Baudrillard has some answers, as does Max Weber. Also, I read Dan Harris' book "10% Happier" about his journey into finding meditation. A great book for anyone deeply skeptical about the self-help guru world.

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.
