I was at a place in my life where I had gotten very cynical. I had lost a lot of hope for my comedy and everything else and I really feel that I was no longer able to really appreciate other people’s stories. I had lost my ability to really kind of listen and enjoy the company of other people and I think that when I look back at the podcast, it was really a way of me reconnecting with like-minded people, with people I’d sort of known for years and learning how to talk about problems and issues with friends and peers and because of that my joy came back, my ability to laugh came back, my ability to listen and engage emotionally with someone else’s story came back. It brought me back into the world of the living emotionally.
