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 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?

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!

My husband won the weight loss challenge. Well, technically both Tom AND Bert won. What motivates someone to make a change? I think shame and self loathing are wonderful motivators!
