Episode 41 – F*ck new year new me. New year, be you!

#NewYearRealMe

Kody is out again this episode and this time, it’s just me. Peter. Jesus take the wheel. This episode we’ll talk about what it means to really settle in to being whoever it is you are and discuss the bullshit that people grow up with where you’re supposed to go to school,
get a job, and do that one thing for the rest of your life until you’re dead. That’s bullshit! People have many dimensions. I, for example, like to dance like a fucking
idiot. So what you’re an accountant, who says you can’t also be the best damn cook you can be? Or what if you’re a video editor, you can be a fitness model too. Or whatever!

Don’t put yourself in a box, let 2019 be the year that you take yourself out of the box that YOU put yourself in dammit. Do some cool shit this year!


-Peter

Episode 40 – The Anniversary Special!

Man, to think, it’s been a year already. Thank you so much to anyone who’s listened in this crazy year we’ve had! The new year makes for such a good time to reflect on all the progress we’ve made in the past 365 days. We reflect on past episodes and concisely (well, kind of) explain where we believe we’ve made progress in those areas of our lives. It seems difficult to continue down the holes of self-loathing, depression, or anxiety when we look back and focus not on the failures we’ve had in the past, but instead to see how far we’ve come. We encourage you to do the same, think about what you were struggling with just one year ago today. We bet it’s a lot easier than it was.

Thank you again to all of our listeners! If you actually listen to all 2 hours of this then holy f*ck, you deserve a medal. We believe in you and we hope you’ve had as spectacular a 2018 as we’ve had.

Episode 39 – Inside the mind of the 2018 teen (ft. My sister Casey)

This episode is about getting inside the mind of someone currently in high school and just random chit chat about various topics including mental health, comedic nonsense, what kids think about therapy, Buffalo Wild Wings (which we did end up getting), social media and the impact on kids her age vs older generations, and a bunch of other random stuff. Thanks Casey for putting up with me for 2 hours!

Episode 38 – Mental health (part 2 of 4)

This episode is about the second corner of our so called “self care square” (someone, please, help us come up with a less corny name for this).  We talk all about mental health and what that means to us.  Things such as self appreciation, putting yourself first, and respecting boundaries.  These are all tough things to achieve in a world where we never quite feel like we’re good enough people, where we’re all hyper aware of the problems facing humanity, and most of us just want to make the world a better place.  I posit this question, however, rather than constantly sacrificing to try to make everyone around us happy, wouldn’t ensuring our own happiness first create a net positive in worldwide happiness, therefore making it a better place by default?  It’s like in airplane crashes when the oxygen masks come down, they always tell you to secure your own mask before helping anyone else.  Anyway, I’m not sure we have an all encompassing answer to this question, but let’s talk about it.

Episode 37 – Sacrifice Q & A Ft. Brian

Today is a special episode!  We have our second guest star.  A dear friend of ours (and fan… I think) had some questions for us regarding our last episode.  So we did a special episode to answer those questions for him and elaborate more on what we discussed in episode 36.  If you have any questions for us or want to put in your two cents, don’t hesitate to shoot us a voicemail or an email and we might invite you to be on an episode just like this one!

Episode 36 – Today Peter F*cked Up – Sacrifice

Today Peter breaks down some sacrifices he’s trying to make in his own life to express care for those that are important to him.  Then we talk about sacrifice in general and where it fits into our relationships.  I don’t have any bad puns or funny quips for this one but, idk, I think this episode is pretty damn good, but give it a listen and judge it for yourself.

Episode 35 – Physical health (part 1 of 4)

Remember like, 25 episodes ago when we came up with something that we cheesily called the “self care square”?  Well, we do, and we still haven’t come up with a better name for it.  We’ll be doing 4 episodes about each corner of the self care square (f*ck I hate that name).  This episode is about physical health.  Don’t mind Peter calling it episode 25 at the intro, he’s a dumb butt.

Episode 34 – Dank Memes

In this episode we rate memes, all the memes, only the memes.  Just kidding.  We actually discuss the song, “Everybody Hates Me” by The Chainsmokers and the mental issues it addresses in society.  And then we get off into a big tangent but it’s pretty deep I think.  Yeah there’s really no great description for this episode, you’ll just have to listen and figure it out for yourself  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Episode 33 – How to be fulfilled

In an extremely philosophical episode, we discuss what makes us feel fulfilled thanks to a conversation Kody had with his friend, “Ryan.”  (You know who you are you beautiful bastard.)  If you haven’t begun your journey to find what makes you feel fulfilled, what are you waiting for?

Episode 32 – Putting yourself first

SHIT, WHAT?  WON’T THAT MAKE ME A SELFISH ASSHOLE?  Well, short answer is no, it won’t.  There is an art to being selfish and not being a dick.  You’re allowed to say no to people if they ask you to do something that makes you uncomfortable.  “People pleasers” often seem to be miserable because they put everyone else’s needs before their own, but if you don’t put your needs first, who will?  Love yourself enough to treat yourself how you want to be treated.
