We introduce and try to lock down some definitions of the self – including the long history of attempts to define and then improve it. We then explore how these attempts have blossomed into a full-blown industry, and how that might look as it progresses over time.
That’s right, we came back for another season of asshattery! This episode resets the bit for out returning listeners and serves as a warning for any noobs that may wander by.
This season we are focusing on the idea of self-help, toxic altruism, and aspects of self care that, just might have, gotten a bit out of control.
We look at happiness, what is it, how do we know we are feeling it?
In the search for our own happiness, we made the executive decision to end Season 5 a few episodes early. there is just a lot going on and if your hobby starts to feel like work – maybe it’s time to take a breather. See you again soon!
We look at charitable contributions in the US. Who, how much, and what for are all up for grabs.

The season of thinking big thinks continues, with a look at just what the hell we’re all so afraid of these days…
