Cheers. Nikolay says: January 6, 2015 at 6:36 pm This episode blew my mind in so many ways… and I haven’t even finished it yet! I learned a lot, and I will definitely be checking out more of Peter Rollins’ material. Sarah says: December 29, 2014 at 9:57 am Also, Peter quoting Mulaney’s bit about being Irish and just suppressing everything until you die, was quite funny, as neither of them could identify who it was who said it. Sarah says: December 29, 2014 at 8:31 am Something interesting regarding the discussion of happiness: Deepak Chopra: “Happiness that is contingent on something is another type of misery.” CS Lewis: “Do not let your happiness depend on something you may lose.” Two men with very different ideals, coming to basically the same conclusion. Happiness has to be a choice, regardless of circumstance. Susan says: December 19, 2014 at 10:45 am I loved this so much, I’m going to listen again. Pete is one of my favorite people (that I know in a completely superficial way), and it was great to hear your two together. Susan says: December 19, 2014 at 10:46 am *you two Patrick Girouard says: December 18, 2014 at 4:28 pm What a great episode Pete. Here’s where I sat up and thought, “This guy’s got it going on.” Pete Holmes: “Why are we here? What’s the meaning of life?” Peter Rollins” “That’s above my pay grade.” Finally an honest response! Thanks for continuing to bring on guests I have never heard of who make me scratch my head and play the podcast a second time. kenaldo says: December 18, 2014 at 9:16 am Moving buddy. Top 5 for sure. Thanks. Daniel R says: December 17, 2014 at 10:11 am Whenever Pete moves away from his bread and butter (comedians) and has on artists, musicians, scientists, etc, the episode is often weaker. With some notable exceptions of course. But holy crap was this one awesome! I feel like someone unloaded a truck full of knowledge on me Adam says: December 12, 2014 at 10:04 pm Thank you for this, Petes. Josh says: December 12, 2014 at 9:45 pm Wow. What a great conversation! I don’t normally love the FORBS episodes as much as the typical irreverent YMIWs that come out, but this was a great conversation. I’m going to have to listen to this a few times just to make sure I catch everything the dueling Petes say! Personally, I love the idea of a Utilitarianism that values inspiration more than happiness. Great stuff. Also, there are some wonderful young religious institutions that have begun to define spirituality as the way in which anyone connects to concepts larger than themselves — be it God, art, people hood, science, community, social action, nature, music, academic pursuits, etc… From my faith, as an example, check these guys out: http://www.JCoSD.com … Crispy ep as usual Pete! Jess Nielsen says: December 11, 2014 at 8:16 pm You’re the Oprah of the podcast world! Kristen says: December 11, 2014 at 11:52 am Your podcast is my new church. I wish that your podcast was a place I could go every week where I walk in and congregate with a bunch of folks, shake hands, sing songs, and then sit down and listen to you shoot the breeze with people. Coffee and donuts after. Or an impromptu group trip to the Golden Corral. anony says: December 11, 2014 at 10:49 am Another incredible episode! Pete and his guests are on a roll! Nick says: December 10, 2014 at 3:21 pm Jesus dick butter, this is one of my all time favorite episodes. Eric J. Carter says: December 10, 2014 at 3:12 pm Another excellent podcast, Pete! Corbin VanderZalm says: December 10, 2014 at 2:24 pm praise Arlo says: December 10, 2014 at 2:09 pm Thanks for such a great episode. Stathe says: December 10, 2014 at 11:18 am Jesus dick butter… Bark says: December 10, 2014 at 10:49 am Good old Richard-Stephen Hawkins 😉 This one really hit home for me, especially the parts about group separation as a defense mechanism and why you should expose your anxieties to pursue truth and happiness. A little depressing to listen to in a cubicle, but nothing a little bike ride can’t help. Estaban says: December 10, 2014 at 10:17 am Bano es en la casa de puntas, cervasa por favor!
