Today’s guest, Daniel Mackler, is a trained psychotherapist, a filmmaker and a musician, but the reason he came into my awareness is because he has a website that tells people exactly what he thinks – and I happen to think he’s on to something.
So I posted his essay “Eleven Situations in Which it Is Not Appropriate for You to Have Kids” on facebook and asked him if he would talk with me on my show. He cheerfully agreed.
Even though we talked for well over an hour, by the end I felt that we’d hardly begun. If you want to hear more of our conversation than this half-hour episode allows, click here to download the MP3 or listen here
to hear a longer version. But like I said – if you ask me, even an hour is just the tip of the iceberg.
After admitting that I do think that bringing three precious people into this insane world (and to be raised by insane parents) was a kind of criminal act on my part, playing Bar Scott‘s “Confession” seemed an appropriate way to wrap up the show. And then I lay down on my bed to breathe for a good long time.
Forgive me children, for I knew not what I did… or something like that.
Peace and love,
