Episode 13
Are We Dehumanizing Our Fellow Human Beings?

In this episode Morgan starts us off with a story of tragedy that he recently witnessed and which left him with a difficult question.

Have we as a society, culture or even human race dehumanized and devalued our fellow human beings? How is it that we can see human suffering and just shrug our shoulders in disinterest? This leads to talk of politics, Donald Trump and getting to know your inner fascist.

Just your typical show as three guys pursue the answers to life, the universe and everything.

Episode 12
Conspiracies…Why Are We So Obsessed?

Why do we love conspiracies? Whether it’s the theories that explain the unexplainable in a quasi-scientific way, we have political conspiracies both historical and present day, and we have the otherworldly conspiracies like UFOs and time traveling.

Now these are all interesting topics over a cup of coffee but why do these theories seem to become almost obsessive to some rational minded people (include some on this very show today). Why do we have this incessant need to think we’re being duped or that important information is being withheld from us?

And why do some of us really want these outlandish conspiracy theories to be true? Do we just want life to be a little more magical or do we really believe the answers to solving our life’s most important questions are out there and revolve around this forbidden knowledge? And maybe more importantly are these theories reflective of our hope or of our fear?

All this this and more as three guys pursue the answers to life, the universe and everything.

Episode 11
Finding Purpose

What is our purpose in life?
And do we even need purpose to lead happy lives?
Also, what do you do with unrealized dreams, the so called unlived life?

Well, that is what we start off with. Then we end up talking about free will, is life predetermined.

Actually talking isn’t as accurate as arguing. Arguing to the point that Morgan is stunned into a deep silence.

All this and more as three guys pursue the answers to life the universe and everything.

Episode 10
Why Are We Still So Violent?

“We often think of peace as the absence of war,
that if powerful countries would reduce their weapon arsenals,
we could have peace.

“But if we look deeply into the weapons, we see our own minds –
our own prejudices, fears and ignorance.

“Even if we transport all the bombs to the moon,
the roots of war and the roots of bombs are still there,
in our hearts and minds, and sooner or later we will make new bombs.

“To work for peace is to uproot war from ourselves
and from the hearts of men and women.

“To prepare for war, to give millions of men and women the opportunity to
practice killing day and night in their hearts,
is to plant millions of seeds of violence, anger, frustration, and fear
that will be passed on for generations to come.”

― Thích Nhất Hạnh from his book “Living Buddha, Living Christ”

Is this why we still find so much violence in our world,
due to our own prejudices, fears and ignorance?

Is it possible to create a world without violence?

We look into the heart of darkness of this human race

Episode 9
Way of the Hero

Heroes
What does that word mean or does it have meaning anymore?
Is the word “Hero” so weighted down by TV news and political propaganda
that it’s definition has been lost?
Have we lost the idea of simply being a good person?
Or is being a good person that rare that it is heroic to be one?
Is there such a deficiency of heroes that we see them everywhere,
on the news, on TV and in the movies?

Where are the heroes, what is a hero and who gets to decide?

Episode 7
Right, Wrong, Deep Values and Cannibalism

Today we’re talking about right and wrong a subject
many people may think is easy to define.

But what I came to find in this discussion is that it’s a little more slippery
as you throw in the values, morals and ethics of not only yourself but of
family, community, culture, religion and politics, some of which may
have opposing view points on what is right and wrong.

Well on this episode we try to sort it all out as
3 guys pursue the answers to life, the universe and everything.

Episode 3
Like A Fish Needs A Bicycle

Writer and social activist Irina Dunn once said:
A woman needs a man, like a fish needs a bicycle.

It’s kind of funny and clever but it also stings because it’s saying men are irrelevant.

So on this episode we talk about what it is to be a man in the 21st century.

How do we get out of the box society has built for men,
has put us in and tries to keep us in?

As men should we try to keep the status quo, keep things business as usual,
or do we move and flow with the change and even find ways to accelerate the change?
