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 episode I explore selfishness and how it can be a great thing. Why are women so bad at being selfish? Also, everyone hates Ayn Rand and  I tell you why (she doesn't believe in helping the handicapped). Zoinks! Doing stuff motivated by guilt sucks and what age is appropriate to take your child to a bar?

During labor, women are told to relax in between contractions. To take a rest in the space between them. I get deep on this idea and the book "The Untethered Soul" and break down the key to happiness. Maybe the key to happiness isn't in happiness at all? Also, the Beastie Boys, Allen Iverson and what we can learn from Revenge of the Nerds. A short list of some of my favorite things.

"Love yourself" is the mantra of plus-sized models and drag queens, but what does that really mean? Does anybody really love themselves? The book "Self Compassion" by Kristin Neff argues that most people don't and the self esteem movement doesn't really solve the problem of self loathing. But is it possible that self-loathing could be a good thing in small doses? Take a listen, bros.
