90's, music, work
We started talking about Fiona Apple's "Criminal", then Luke posited that 90's pop was "deeper" because Gen-Xers were angsty and hypersexual. We disagreed, until it came to Ginger Spice. Then, we agreed too much! Also, Gomer is a boss and Luke wonders if I can make my employees virtuous. Gomer doubts it. END PART ONE.

church, leadership, non-profit, work, yelling
Thanks to The Liturgical Institute and ViaCatholic.org for sponsoring the show! Unfortunately, it was the show where Luke and I argue so much that we hate each other. Luke tells me grace builds upon nature, again, but then he says that's why parishes need to study how to run successful non-profits. Wait a second. Hold on a minute. Didn't Luke pour haterade on everything I said in the past that involved similar suggestions? We yell.

comedy, louis ck, overwork, sexual assault, work, work life balance
We discuss the myth of overwork, thinking that working hard and working a lot are the same thing. Gomer shares the disgust he has with himself for overbooking his October/November schedule, every weekend for 7 weekends in a row. Luke then talks about one of his heroes, Louis CK, and what it means for him in the wake of the accusations against him. What about the victims? What about the problem of empathy?
