We attempt to start season two of We Need to Talk again, this time with a renewed sense of motivation. Things start a little rough as we get back into the groove, but we quickly find our footing among the psychological weeds of making the right choices, and how we can make better choices. Evan: You spend nights and Fridays and drinks and car rides to their house and the bar and the shuttling to and back and it's all supposed to be fun, and so little of it is fun. Dan: Well that just sounds...

Season two of We Need to Talk begins with a discussion on motivation. We can become complacent, adrift, and lazy. How do we reverse this? Apply advice to all wounds, projects, and relationships. Evan: I'll look at the dishes. I'll say this is a 10 minute job. I don't have hot water in my sink, so I have to boil water. Kind of a bummer. And that's another thing, I could talk to my landlord about the water not working in my sink. I don't do it. This episode includes special guest Quigley,...

We’re back with our friend Sean, a guy who makes friends with the person deemed his greatest enemy by OKCupid, who attends a dance marathon not knowing a soul, and who makes a mean pie. Look for the follow up episode, coming soon, that details how to make a pie just as well as he does. Look for a tissue, soon, to dab your eyes after listening.

Instead of life, however, she spends some grueling last moments with each, one in a tent in New Zealand, one in an apartment where the only private refuge was the bathroom. Lessons are learned. Dan: It sounds like you make these big commitments… Evan: …make these leaps and they just crack. Ashley: Mmm hmm, yep. [laughter] Music by Sylvie Davidson and 14 Foot 1.

Also, we learn how Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is a better aphrodisiac than rhino horn. Jen: Just surround yourself with good people, whether or not your sleeping with any of them… but if you can have sex with any of them, go for it. Music by Souvenir Driver.

Alex is a traveling circus performer. Kind of. The traveling and the performing may not have anything to do with each other, or the time he got mugged in Glasgow. Even though he’s moved his life a lot, he lends his serene state of mind to the podcast. Dan: Don’t be so likable, would be […]
