• Episode 23: Fight Or Fight.

    P steps out on his own on his first solo episode and opens up about his upbringing and some of the traumas that led to his PTSD diagnosis. He talks about life after PTSD and why he feels like his life is essentially over. P talks about how he struggles with day to day tasks, and relies on his wife financially since his disability compensation isn't enough to cover their living expenses.

  • Episode 22: “I Need To Do Better.”

    To keep with our new weekly format, while P's working on his upcoming solo episode Dan briefly talks about his transparency and answers some questions about his mental health. He also poses a question of his own. On a first date, if your date tells you they take psychiatric medicine for Bipolar Disorder, how would you react?

  • Episode 21: Emotional Abuse.

    Dan and P discuss emotional abuse in the workplace, at home, and in relationships. Some of this abuse is subtle by design in order to leave plenty of room for gaslighting and other forms of manipulation, especially at work. We also talk about how college aged adult women are targets because of their lack of life experience.

  • Episode 20: My Pain. My Trauma. My Life.

    While cleaning off an old iPad Dan came across an old journaling app he used to write in. He shares his very last journal entry which was in 2016 and goes on to talk about some of the traumatic memories that came to mind after reading his journal.

  • Episode 19: NBGAF

    This week Dan and P share their experiences and opinions on how people generally don't give a f***. No matter how much you complain, no one really cares and the only people who listen are the people that almost have to listen. We doubt they care either. P also details more of his experiences in getting fired from the Fire Department for job related PTSD

  • Episode 18: Distressed Genes.

    Since P is a father of many, many, m-ma-mm-ma-many children, Dan wanted to know if he fears passing some of the traits of his mental illness on to his children. Since children often learn by watching, it's not hard to believe that they can learn and adopt "abnormal" behavior and think it's normal.

  • Episode 17: Black Sheep

    Dan and P are joined by Afro Becky (from Black Law and Legal Lies) to discuss their relationships with their families and how they’ve distanced themselves from people. Both of us are pretty insulated from the outside world, only interacting when we have to. P talks about how he really lives by the “no new friends” motto. We also discuss being treated differently because of mental illnesses and most importantly how and why we feel like Black Sheep.

  • Episode 16: Symptoms Return.

    We've both been going through rough times for a little over a month now. P has been off of his psychiatric medication totally for almost 2 years, until about 10 days ago. Recently P's insomnia, depression and heightened anxiety have returned big-time, prompting him to make an appointment with his doctor and be placed back on medication. P talks about what he was going through and his reaction to his medication and some of the altercations he's been in since adjusting to them.

  • Episode 15: Second Chances.

    Dan and P discuss second chances. Should past trauma and environmental conditions be taken into consideration when evaluating someone's actions? Many of our community's heros have checkered pasts. People like Tupac, Mike Tyson, Allen Iverson, Michael Vick, Jay-Z etc... have all done things at one point that were criminal in nature. If you look into their upbringings you'll see a lot of similarities.

  • Episode 14: Nuts For Hire.

    Dan and P discuss quarter-life and mid-life crises. Much like our peers, we had no guidance growing up and we weren’t aware of the many opportunities that were available to us. Dan shares what his earliest aspirations were and why his anxiety and the underlying fear of failure has prevented him from accomplishing them. P shares how he ended up becoming firefighter/EMT. We also detail a lot of the various jobs we’ve had over the years good, bad, and funny.
