About This Episode:
This year is whining down and I’ve had serval moments of reflection. I thought about Trump. I thought about the job market. I thought about the mass shootings, Protests, Championships, and countless highs and lows. We will be going deeper into 2017 in our finale episode next week, but for now, I want to share a moment that inspired this particular episode. I attended a music festival last weekend as a means to meet new artists and reconnect with old friends. If you’re a person who attends music festivals on a regular, you’ll notice (or at least I have) that there is a ton of weed smoked at these events. #TreesBeBurnin. Now, I’m not a sticker for drugs. I don’t care either way whether you smoke or not, but I did find it interesting how over abundant it was. Everybody was Lit!! So I pondered, like I normally do. I asked, “What is the meaning behind this?” In this episode we discuss the need for escapism and our desire to use drugs, alcohol, tv shows, and more for it. Enjoy!
