Turg and Randy Z are back and in business with a new episode to end a series of listener questions surrounding relationships and what to do when you become the master of your own demise. But first, they discuss...

Randy getting stuck in DC. Why Southwest is garbage. The benefits of traveling carry-on only. Why planes are constantly falling out of the sky. Why Randy forgets his flight was cancelled. Randy watches Get Out and shares his thoughts. The guys discuss zombies. Turg hates the Randy “wow” remark and cracks the “wow” code. Randy’s car gets keyed. Turg raises his street cred. Meteorologists are just well-dressed snake oil salesmen. Turg reflects on the previous episode and the missed opportunities. Turg issues a mea culpa for missing some developmental details from last week’s discussion about compromise in relationships.

The guys bridge the topics from last week to this week when they discuss how one would be able to identify that their partner is holding them back. Making change on your own to benefit the relationship, is it actually effective? Seeking advice and an objective opinion is a weakness many share. Why Randy can’t put up with bullshit anymore. Defense mechanisms and why Turg decides to “manbash”. How often have you asked yourself “Am I the problem”? Reflecting on your own folly; self-diagnosing your own mistakes.

This time the guys ask the difficult questions about when relationships breakdown like…

when do you draw the line on relationship strain? How much emotional dependence should one derive from a relationship? Should a relationship be your sole source of fulfillment? When someone else needs you too much, what do you do? How about when someone doesn’t need you at all, how do you approach that situation? Why giving too much of yourself is not a healthy relationship goal. How do we know we are giving too much? Why emotional stability can be derived from many sources – and when it fails to fulfill you within your relationship.

Finally, the guys address relationship nuance – do you stay or do you go; how and when do you decide after the relationship has been derailed? Why people stay for selfish reasons. How many don’t realize their relationship has been failing and refuse to cut ties for whatever reason keeps them in check. Why we often over-invest in relationships and fear pulling away. And can we ever make the right decision when it comes to cutting ties?

This week, Turg and Randy discuss the new album by Jidenna and using the themes surrounding this powerful freshman release, including…

Pursuing relationships post-breakup, getting invited to the ex’s wedding, why a relationship in retrospect brings a lot of unnecessary anxiety into the fray, why the 20s relationship mentality will only set you up for failure in your 30s, prioritizing relationship goals and career goals – which comes first and can we live with the decisions we make, why we always look to the past for sorrow, when do you take the next step in discussing your future with your significant other, day dream relationship standing versus actual relationship standing, how society dictates the way we interpret our roles and expectations in a relationship, holding on - readjusting in a relationship to just make it work.

The guys also debate how sabotaging relationships to by neglecting the basic needs of a relationship to survive is a reality in most of our lives. The mentality behind how a relationship is constructed – and at the same time deconstructed – because of where we are in our lives at the time the relationship.

Turg goes on to discuss how he almost sabotaged his own relationship by incorrectly applying the old saying, “Happy wife happy life” to his own life by letting things get out of control. Then the guys wrap up the discussion by addressing how what Turg did may have been the wrong approach to a way toward achieving compromise. Turg and Randy debate the varying perspectives around the selfless and selfish approach to relationships, how marriage changes everything and why you cannot assume you will maintain the same expectations throughout, how Turg and Randy view the varying perspectives behind compromise in a relationship when a relationship is in trouble, why divorce and breakups are dramatically different when perceived by others, Randy discusses the ‘Come back tour” and why revisiting relationships is a bad idea, how Randy tries to identify with his mistakes in past relationships and he reflects on why we miss opportunities based on contributions to the relationship, why reflecting on a relationship and focusing on the duality of energy makes a difference in successes and failures in relationships, how settling for a relationship that just doesn’t work is a failures mentality, how a Justin Timberlake reference makes an appearance on the show and why it’s relevant, why failure in relationships is the reality of the world in which we live, how a Talladega Nights reference makes an appearance on the show and how it’s actually relevant to Turg reaching hard to make a point, and how the guys wrap by getting back to heated debates around percentages.

Join your world-renown Man Bun teasers, Turg & Randy, Z as they explore the very depths of their souls in order to painfully mine the memories of the past needed to help develop this show and...the guys talk bachelor parties and Turg's San Diegan exploits with his college buddies, how grooming your genitals in your 30s is an absolute must, why experiences are different now in your thirties, how finances unlock the purest form of male debauchery, why Randy can't seem fathom drunken urination, where Randy disagrees with Turgs male bonding hygienic standards, how comparing experiences from our 20s to our 30s just poses things in a disturbing light, why rocking out with your balls out is a reality in your 30s, how shedding your 20s and embracing your 30s is the new normal, if faking it 'till you make it is the gold standard of our generation then what happens when you make it, debating the differences between deep rooted change and superficial change and how they impact life at 30, owning your truth and becoming "your self" , discussing Turg's journey and revelations along the way, how not identifying with culture - during their childhood - affects their adult life, why relationship identity theft is a real big problem and trying to regain post-breakup, why change can embody many forms throughout your adult life, and the realization that the process of self-discovery is a rebellion in and of itself.

Join the guys for this week's episode that covers a lot of new concepts that will carry on throughout this season. This is what we call a "key topic". Turg gets real and Randy helps him get there. It's a wild ride, sometimes a ride that takes many different turns to get to the final point, but a wild ride none-the-less.

Join your "hosts with the mosts" Turg & Randy Z as they get rather testy talking about a certain part of the male anatomy that just gets all the juices flowing...

This week a listener question has risen and the guys answer probably THE most controversial question about the male member:

"How difficult is it for a man to tell his father that his baby son will not get circumcised because we are in a free country and the times have changed? Should baby boys continue to be circumcised in the 21st century? How does having matching penises make a man more manly and a better father?"

Come along this magic carpet ride with us as we discuss...

Why circumcision follows a path alongside family tradition, how age factors into the decisions you make for your children, why fathers might not say why but might intend on maintaining the tradition, why retrospect cannot necessarily shed light on the decisions that were made with our sons, if pain factors in to the early developmental portion of a child's mind, what the general consensus thought about the question posed prior to recording the podcast, how Turg gets a random note from a Nurse about her stance on circumcision, how circumcision saves governments money all across the globe, if penis reconstruction surgery to reattach the foreskin really gets the job done, how when the perception becomes the reality we all lose, how celebrities like Howard Stern and Joe Rogan feel about the subject of circumcision, how misconceptions about circumcision have worked against the hooded ones, when circumcision is almost a dire necessity and why, why Turg is jealous of pussy power, how Randy justifies talking about penis with friends more and more, what happens when she falls out of love with your special guy, why wives typically side with the husband on circumcision and why Turg is pissed off about it, why Turg gets a bit ornery at the medical professionals that advocate for circumcision, why Randy doesn't agree with Turg, and the guys wrap it up.

Join your favorite hosts Turg & Randy Z as they get cozy around the proverbial camp fire to discuss all the things that make this world go 'round including...why Randy is getting into trouble at a funeral, how ex-girlfriends are just plain weird (or not), why Randy was never invited to the holiday party, Turg talks meditation – again, why Turg feels a bit freer this week, how Randy is going to join in the meditation craze, why Buddhism is both selfish and selfless, why meditation is fun, Turg has an informal conversation turn listener question and the guys try to tackle the virtually endless topic - and a little bit as to why Randy still hasn't figured out the answer to...

"How do you know you are in a bad relationship and what can you do to prevent it from happening or stop it from getting worse?"

This week the guys ask – and answer (with loving delicacy).

Join your favorite hosts Turg & Randy Z as they spend the episode discussing the first in a series of listener questions submitted as well as...

why Turg has cotton mouth, Randy's big real estate disappointment, how a real estate agent suggested Randy gets married, how the Trump effect hurts more than helps, Turg talks gifts and musical theater, we find out Rent has a special place in Randy's heart, we learn a bit about Turg's theater knowledge in a nutshell, why Turg is suddenly into musical theater, how Hamilton gains more relevance now with Rent in hindsight, the guys discuss live music versus soundtracks and albums, Turg says he's taking the Talk Thirty To Me team to see Hamilton in Los Angeles, the guys consider a potentially new concepts for the show, stay tuned to see if the guys get sued for copyright infringements, and the guys tackle their very first listener submitted question.

What does it mean to actually work at thirty? What is the true meaning of success as perceived by our loved ones at thirty? Do we communicate our struggles clearly enough? Do we handle each situation as measured and level headed as we can at this age? Do we struggle with the concept that the perception is reality as a generation? Do parents overreact when their children make the same mistakes they made at their age? Do parents let us make the same mistakes before trying to pose a life lesson for us? Do parents project their own failures to the extent that they destroy experiences for us as young adults? Are we just too sensitive as Millennials? #WorkingAtThirty
