Episode #5×40: Pierre Delecto, A Therapist’s Secrets, Our Own Confessions

  • This week, we welcome BAE supporter and licensed therapist Morgan to the show! We hope she can fix us. (This episode does not serve as a therapy replacement, and we highly encourage seeking out a therapist if you need help!)
  • We all wish we were as hip and cool as Pierre Delecto, Mitt Romney’s alter-ego.
  • Morgan fills us in on her experience pursuing a career in therapy, and answers all of our burning questions about how to have a successful therapy experience.
  • Morgan also leads us through a mindfulness exercise LIVE on air. Sit back, take a deep breath, and watch those leaves float downstream. Check out her business page here!
  • A new study from Pew Research shows that the portion of Americans with no religious affiliation is growing. We review our religious backgrounds and talk about how our views have evolved over the years.
  • The results of Canada’s federal election were rolling in as we recorded, but we did take a brief pause to talk about the early results and give some love to our northern neighbors.
  • Laura debuts “The Washington Minute,” in which she attempts to cram a week’s worth of updates from the nation’s capitol into 60 seconds. Godspeed.
  • We receive an update from one of last week’s Confessional writers, and come clean with our own confessions.
  • Would you rather… know WHEN you’re going to die, or HOW you’re going to die?
  • This week’s recommendations are giving love to all the media outlets: HBO’s Succession (Andrew), Netflix’s “Marianne” (Laura), Hulu’s “Looking for Alaska” (Pam), and Esther the Wonder Pig (Morgan).

And in this week’s installment of After Dark, available exclusively on Patreon:

  • A new study conducted by GfK Consumer Life reveals that Gen Z-ers are less likely to “always want to be reachable” compared to Millennials. 
  • How reachable do we want to be? The panel discusses the struggles of always being “on.”
  • What impact has technology had on Gen Z, since they’ve never not known it? Will there be an anti-technology shift with this age group?
  • A fun new Twitter challenge emerges from the discussion.
