    Brace Yourself (Ep. 72)

    "Dominant groups do not give up their power easily." That's according to law professor and OG Tiger Mom Amy Chua. I've thought about this statement quite a bit, and I've come to reject this framing of our current state of the world. It's catchy but also panicky and outraged, and makes us feel hopeless and doomed. 
    I believe there's another way. While dominant groups may not give up power easily, there IS a way to resolve in vs. out-group conflicts peacefully and even (dare I say) "normally." And who couldn't use a strong dose of normal these days? 
    As always, thank you for listening!

    I Will Remember You (Doo-Doo-Da-Da-Da) (Ep. 71)

    I Will Remember You (Doo-Doo-Da-Da-Da) (Ep. 71)

    Here’s a hard truth: One day you may be forgotten. Eugene and David debate why that truth might be tough for some of us to swallow, and why it may be okay not to be remembered. Also in this episode, both David and Eugene were recently triggered watching “dads behaving badly.” We talk about what (respectively) triggered us about dad behavior in the wild. As always, thank you for listening!

    A Rey By Any Other Name (Spoilers!) (Ep. 70)

    What’s in a name? Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker finally reveals the mystery of Rey’s identity what it means for the Skywalker saga. Eugene and I discuss our thoughts on the movie (spoiler alert!) and the future of SW franchise. Our conversation also spills beyond the screen to how questions of Rey’s identity tie in to the real world. Happy new year everyone and thank you as always for listening!

    Does God Care If You Wear that Shirt? (Ep. 69)

    Does God Care If You Wear that Shirt? (Ep. 69)

    As we near the end of 2019, David and Eugene look back on what a year it’s been, and look ahead to 2020. Eugene describes how he sees God’s will for himself – whether it be broad and general or specific and concrete, while David rants about society’s "bait-and-switch" when it comes to children and technology, and we each revisit our purpose for our lives. As always, thanks for listening!

    My Word of the Year for 2020 (Ep. 68)

    For every riddle under the sun,
    There is an answer or there is none.
    If there be one, try and find it;
    If there be none, never mind it.

    Free Range Parenting (Ep. 67)

    Free Range Parenting (Ep. 67)

    Should we be free range parents? David and Eugene discuss the concept of raising children in the spirit of greater independence and less supervision. And while both of us applaud the notion that children should take risks, make mistakes, and learn from failure, in our opinion, free range parenting has one MAJOR flaw that keeps us from calling ourselves FRP's. Thank you as always for listening!
