Chessa Budai | Limits of Care
Chessa and I go way back. She is a Biblical scholar turned elementary school therapist and an all-around thoughtful, compassionate, and charming human being. We talk about accepting and working within the limits of compassionate care, whether with her clients, her family, or her husband. This was one of the first episodes I recorded and is one of my favorites. Want to support the show? Consider a free trial of The Great Courses Plus.

David Pizarro | Beginning
I’m so grateful to have Dave Pizarro as our first guest. He is a psychology professor at Cornell University and the cohost of Very Bad Wizards, a podcast that influenced the creation of our show. We explore his work, his religious upbringing, and the ways in which our evolutionary impulses can be hijacked by culture and belief.
