Rish Outcast 56: The Big Release

Sometimes, you need to let off steam.  Some people do it by going to batting cages or shooting ranges, some people do it by video games or alcohol or loud music or hate crimes.  Me . . . I break things.  That's sort of what this episode is about.  Sort of.

Okay, here's a warning.  This is one of those episodes where I go maybe a bit deeper into myself than I usually do, in what's colloquially known as an overshare.

It's the first show I'm going to mark with a TMI alert.  And sadly, it won't be the last.

If you absolutely have to download this episode, well, you probably oughtta right-click HERE.

Rish, thanks for having the confidence to share this more personal story with us. I also enjoyed the story of you and your dad with the new car. It makes me think I should be more personal in my Strewn Along the Path. There is still an episode I recoded a while ago about our most recent move, which after recording I thought, "Why would people care about this?" Maybe I was wrong.

Regarding your discussion of allowing ourselves to be sad, and not distract ourselves away from it, I can totally relate. I remember feeling the same way when I had previously heard Louis CK tell that story on Conan. I tend to be the positive one trying to look on the bright side and attempting to cheer people up. I don't feel that I can allow myself to be sad or angry because then I end up either hurting or neglecting someone else. However, that isn't always the healthiest way to take care of myself emotionally.

Anyway, thanks for sharing, and thatnks for the Rish Outcast.
