Conceived in a dream and fueled by an endless fascination in the great human experiment that is life on earth, we bring you the Cathartic Yardstick Podcast. These are the random musings of two old guys and one-time college roommates who find themselves in similar existential states after following different career paths. It is about the conversations that two ex-roommates, who have a shared history through life’s journey, would have with each other. The Cathartic Yardstick is about life, love, philosophy, natural and supernatural phenomena, and what happens when you finally have enough time to contemplate what just happened and what comes next.
