Ep 130: Don't Try

about 1 year ago

This episode I get deep on Bukowski's tombstone, where it is written "Don't Try". What does this mean? Should we be seduced into a life of drunken sloth? Or is this a more Yoda-like message? Also, the big secret to marital bliss! I answer emails - a young man feels regret, how to get over this? A married man writes in about a spat he had with this wife. Should he confront her? It's all here bros, let's get super deep on it!
