This! I just drove from LA to Denver and piped this and Heavyweight the entire way. Wonderful.

‘Philosophize This’ by Stephen West is pretty good, especially if you’ve read some of the works discussed. But even if not, it is usually a pretty light, conversational look at philosophical problems.

I saw this mention and was looking for a new podcast to binge, so I picked it up—so good! It reminds why I sort of studied philosophy in college (most of the time I’m just trying to block out an ill-fated Kant class).

Fucking tired of this rat race. Been working for 11 years and just got laid off, CD said they "couldn't give a reason". Been let go a bunch of times, had boring or mean clients, toxic coworkers, underpaid, under utilized, more bad times than good. I love design but being a professional sucks, and if this first decade is how it goes I wont survive the next 20 or 30 years. Taking time off while I figure out my next move, will probably be entrepreneurial. Anybody else in this boat?

Does anyone here work for a state university’s GC office? Considering lateraling as a 3rd year litigation associate to a university’s GC office. It’s clear the work life balance would be better (SET office hours and no working late) but trying to decide if the benefits outweigh the pay cut. At the firm there is no set vacation day amount per year, just get your work done. Wondering if that’s similar in the GC world. Any advice or comparison from firm life to university GC would be appreciated.

Idk if anyone can related but I am *so* tired of the responsibility that comes with being the oldest. I’m not even 30 and my single parent is putting so many parental responsibilities on me. If I don’t pay for my siblings, we don’t go on family vacations. If I don’t plan the vacation start to finish, we don’t go. If I don’t hound my siblings to do their work, their failure is on my head. It’s been like this since childhood and I’m getting so exhausted and feeling some animosity.
