That's Deep Bro
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.

I watched 13 Reasons Why and loved it almost as much as my beloved BH90210.  High school sucks donkey dicks and in this episode I uncover why. The compelling reasons to attend college (to become interesting and drink Zima). My favorite new British Baking Show contestant and the deepness of her victory. It's not just about avoiding a soggy bottom! Why you can't necessarily DO everything. I mean you can, just not perfectly. How do we make peace with doing things imperfectly. Also, what are our limits and who defines them? A 34 year-old single woman writes in feeling the panic of her biological clock ticking away. She's newly single and wants to find her forever jeans! The horrors of modern-day dating. A Mormon girl writes in and asks how she can get over her competitiveness. She hates games! It may have something to do with approval seeking...and the good opinion of others...The book I recommend is by Wayne Dyer, Your Erroneous Zones.

I accidentally downloaded a Christian audio book but still managed to glean some wisdom about perfectionism before the endless bible quotes sent me running. Why is everyone else seemingly doing "it" right but me? I have a theory. All the great psychological truths are in Sesame Street.  I grew up in an era where girls were told they could be secretaries or hairdressers - how does one transcend societal norms?! An emailer asks if it's possible that he's already gotten his life at just 24 years old?  An overweight bro asks how to lose weight. I divulge my foolproof post-baby French methods. Such a big episode, let's get it alllllll, bros!

This episode I discuss the myth of "shy actors" and why that's just code for being anti-social. Also, after a viewing of the film "Reality Bites" it occurs to me how insanely different life was in a pre-panopticon existence (fancy word). An emailer writes in asking how she can overcome her anxiety and irrational fears about quitting her job. Will she ever find another job ever again?!? A man writes in asking how to deal with his demanding mother. "Mummy, may I live my life?" And a woman addicted to a stressful job wants to know how to let go. It's allllll here and it's all so deep. Let's get our lives in this episode!

This episode I uncover the difference between detachment vs non-attachment. How does one stay aloof like Jackie O while getting shit done? To care and not care at the same time is THE skill to master. Tom Segura stops in for an impromptu discussion on non attachment and stage fright. The myth and legend of the White Duke of Malibu. Also, a young man writes in asking if he should let the ladies know he is almost a virgin. Also, how does one deal with performance anxiety (it's not sexual!)? Get your life and you will find it all out.

Still reeling from the results of the Great British Baking show, I discuss my favorite baker, Ruby. Why do I love her self-deprecation so much? It's so English! Also, the magic of puttering and finding a parking spot. What type of faith does one need to find ample parking? An emailer writes in about the imminent release of her abusive stepfather from prison. What should she do? You may not have a parent in prison, but what about a toxic one? How do you know if yours are? I discuss the 9 ways to know. A woman writes in who wants to help her boyfriend get his life. But how??? Also, a list of my fave self help books. Surprise! One is by Dr. Laura - don't hate me...

A listener emails in - he made it to an Ivy League school but feels like he doesn't deserve to be there. His peers have't been thru the horrific stuff he has and he feels like maybe nobody can relate. I get it, let's get deep on it. Also a woman who practices witchcraft asks if she should come out to the people in her community. Should she be out and proud or hide that shit?? Where do we draw the line on being out on stuff? Also, subversion. What function does it provide in society and when is it just to annoy people? Let's get our entire lives and get deep as F#ck.

This past week I had a flat tire during rush hour on the 405. What did I do???  It may have involved foraging for stale water bottles and Door Dash. Also, why do people always think other people have it so much worse than them? Being entitled to your story is important. How many Existential Crises are normal within a year and what should you do when shit gets REAL? You'll find out. I answer an email from a good guy who can't seem to get the girl. Why are people disingenuous with others - like the ridiculous Garth Brooks videos oozing praise on the lighting guys? I read responses from people who have worked as psychics! Are they real?  You'll have to get your entire life and find out.

I replaced a crown after being in pain for 5 years. Why the hell did I wait so long? Why does anyone wait so long to make the changes they really want to? How do we get unstuck?  Marianne Williamson has a great suggestion. Also, a man gave me free tacos and I almost cried. There are kind people in LA! Sesame Street blew my mind this week with the word of the day - "Unique".

This episode I discuss the phenomena of over-parenting, narrating every aspect of your child's experience and other people's shitty kids. Also, what is so bad about "starting over"? A friend is on the verge of a major life change but is reluctant because he'd be "starting over". What does that mean and why are we so hell bent on staying the same? Our sense of identity is important, but it can also be holding us back. A woman emails about her annoyance with writer Elizabeth Gilbert's recent news of becoming a lesbian. Why would someone suddenly turn gay at 40? Also what wisdom can be gleaned from the film "Mona Lisa Smile". You're about to find out and get your life.

After months of confusion I've finally spoken to an actual non-binary person! Freddie gave some insight into what being non-binary means and why it's so confusing for people to understand.  I finally get to ask all my burning questions - like is it appropriate to ask a stranger "Hey, what's your pronoun?" Also, why it's horrible to call employees "Team Members" (barf). It's all here, so get your life!
