Other guests from the original 2013 episode include actor Julia Sweeney, and writers Lesley Hazelton, Alain de Botton, and Devdutt Pattanaik.

The first segment could have been my autobiography. I would classify myself as high functioning. I ended up as the supervisor in most of my jobs although it just ate at me.

Love this episode. I'm a believer in Christ. Not knowing this has been in play, but my Doubts has strengthened my faith. Felt like I was unintentionally seeking for a confirmation bias before hitting play on this episode.
