Let’s Just Be Friends On today’s show . . . Pitied By Friends Have you ever gone broke? If not, can you at least imagine how you might feel? For me, there was a great deal of shame. And not just my own. Other people were ashamed of me, embarrassed for me, for being so stupid with my money. Oh, well. There’s nothing you can really do, of course, to make ill-wishers sympathetic with your mistakes. But you can will yourself to take yet another step . . . Out Of Poverty. Sense Of Self More about ego! How our egos help us and sometimes get in the way of our own social and economic development . . . on this week’s Word Smatter with Jan the Man. Let’s Just Be Friends Very few men escape this ice cold bucket of humiliation. You’re attracted to a particular woman, and she doesn’t feel the same way. Frustrating? Yes. But what’s worse is that you can’t help that you are attracted to her, and she can’t help that she’s not. It’s Nature’s big joke. It happens to everyone. It’s what drives thousands of men to buy hundreds of dollars worth of books and CDs and DVDs promising to teach them how to “GET LAID TONIGHT!” I’ll teach you how to eradicate this horrible experience from your life, once and for all, in our next installment of Advice To Men. Getting Into Trouble Whether you’re already a fan of the SRP Radio Podcast, or you’re just tuning in for the first time, you may not know that there’s another way you can get all the sex, religion, and politics you could possibly want . . . at least as far as we’re concerned. And that is through our website. You’ll find more information about this podcast, including brief descriptions of our Little Guy reporters, who specialize in The View From Below. That is, sex, religion, and politics from the point of view of the Little Guy; the Other 1%. We also offer book recommendations, so you can sharpen your discussion skills on the three things we’re not supposed to talk about in public, and get into all sorts of trouble for doing so. Our podcasts, as you probably know, are comprised of segments. And if you’d rather listen to your favorite segments without having to trod through entire episodes, you can do so on our Soundcloud archive.
