Where you will have the worst experiences, and then there are ways to be, ways to engage with others which will bring you up" - JP [37:48] Transforming suffering into God's compassion [42:59] "Who's the person helping people who suffer? It's usually someone who has suffered, and so there is a way that you can see that.

About the Rollo episode

I had to stop listening 35 mins in, not sure how much worse it could have gotten.

To Clarify, I love the show!

This episode was so Cringe. I’m not super Agreeable, but I couldn't listen to any more. I felt lime Rollo was fishing for more info and dirt on you, even during this interview.

You’re explaining, goes to show, you never know what people are going through. A lot of that the info you told, I felt like wasn’t my business and need not be explained.

Again, I enjoy the show and appreciate you and your dad. Best of Luck in the weird episode department and in general in 2022.
