'Uncomfortable Questions'


Interview program: I interview one ordinary person each show and ask them some of the tough questions of life. "What is Evil?" "What is Love?" "What is the nature of reality?" "Is there a soul?" Each show is different as I follow wherever the conversation wants to go. These are all the things you got to talk about at 2am while drunk on your dorm room floor, but never discuss anymore.

Nov 24, 2007

Today I ask the big questions of Michael, age 33, and Objectivist with a soul. He is from the Greater Minneapolis area, and we met to record in a park on the most glorious of late fall days.

We got into depression, alcoholism, and coming out of all that into a more
hopeful view of life and the universe. Michael was a most open, honest, heartwarming person. I adored doing this interview.

And as always, email me at: uncomfortable-questions@tcinternet.net.

hi lynoure,
I don\'t know if I\'m climbing out of stuff so much as learning to deal with it. I don\'t feel like I\'m winning but I\'m holding it at a standstill.

Thanks for listening to my babbling. And thanks to Sue for putting the drivel up on her site! ;)

Michael, you do the same thing that many of us do... you apologize for being yourself, for expressing your feelings - calling this babbling which is a word with negative connotations. Yes, i could hear a lot of pain in your voice and I could identify with many of your feelings. It is nice to see that despite our past hurts we can move forward. I appreciate your honesty.

I think being forgiving when others make mistakes but beating yourself up when you make mistakes, is a quite common sign of depression. At least it was for me.

It\'s good to see a person succeeding in climbing out of depression. Go, Michael, go!
