Join Turg and Randy Z as they take the discussion in a different direction and discuss probably the most mysterious aspect of living - dying - and how they view death through the lens of members of the Millennial generation and... 

Would you rather be burred or cremated?

Randy shares some staggering statistics about the US viewpoint on how death is processed. Have you considered what is going to happen to you after you die? Do you care? According to Randy's research, burials are the most popular form of processing death in the US in comparison with other nations that believe in cremation. Turg thinks as a society, we have this obsession with latching onto the past. It's something we don't always think about, but it's very important because this decision - a decision we make while living - can affect those we love in many different ways.

Join Turg and Randy Z as they wrap up their discussion around the Netflix Original Series Master of None - with ideas surrounding themes from the season finale of the second season of the show titled "Buona Notte" such as losing control in life, never looking back, and...

How important is it for us, in our 30s, to maintain a sense of control?

Often times we fail to acknowledge how important it is to not lose control of your life in your adulthood. Randy thinks it's almost impossible to have some sort of control over your life in general. It's so hard to control elements in the world that you cannot  control. However, Turg comes back with a different perspective thinking you have control over mostly everything - other than the weather - in your life. There are so many variables that you can control, we sometimes overlook those that we can control by taking them for granted .

Join Turg and Randy Z as they interrupt their regularly scheduled programming to bring you a dose of reality and start this episode off in a somber fashion...

Turg and Randy discuss growing up in America, perceptions of their youth, the ever-changing definitions they faced, and a world that outgrew the standards it once created. 

They continue to discuss the present state of affairs and how things have changed - maybe for the worse. Is our nation falling apart?

What is next for our society? Turg and Randy discuss the future of our Union and the people within it. Can things progress past this point? Can we make amends with the past and move on to a brighter future? Let's hope, for our children's sake - that we can.

Join Turg and Randy Z as they get down to business talking about the perceptions that surround love and relationships, ideas featured in the Netflix Original Series Master of None - Season Two Episode Seven– Door #3 and...

Have you ever thought you have been in love with someone for the wrong reasons? 

Wasting no time, Turg fires this question over to Randy, challenging him to recall all of his past relationships and reflect on if he has falsely fallen in love. Randy quickly answers. While he has always found the time to reflect on his past relationships, he knows there were some issues, but never love for the wrong reasons. He brings up something the guys have touched on before - finding someone that challenges you to be the best you. Randy mentions how he's never been in a relationship where he's felt the need to be his best self. It may be hard to believe, but sometimes relationships are formed around lifestyle choices and convenience rather than growth and mature love.

Join Turg and Randy Z as they walk down memory lane in discussing the WAY back childhood memories that may or may not have influenced their adult lives now and how they somehow paralleled to the very subtle, underlying themes in the Netflix Original Series Master of None - Season Two Episode Eight – Thanksgiving and...

 

Why are experiences with friends in our youth so important throughout our adulthood?

Turg shares memories from when he was a little Turg and explains his recent insights into his experiences as a child and why he thinks he was stuck in a cultural dilemma growing up. He tries to draw parallels or conclusions to what he remembers, but finds it difficult to understand why things were the way they were. He comes to the conclusion that when we are younger we don't really have the capacity to explain or even understand the way things are. But after we grow up, we have the ability to analyze a lot of what was experienced in our early lives. Do we think about these things objectively or subjectively?

That may lead us to think that these memories may influence the way we perceive our childhood as adults. Maybe these scenarios change to accommodate our inability to cope with certain things as adults. It's something that everyone ponders. Will we ever really know the answer? Randy mentions that he judges how well-off someone is by the lighting quality and how loud their appliances are. We all have our ways of analyzing our environment. How do you do it?

Join Turg and Randy Z as they try and figure out why Randy's car is infested and talk about why making a conscious decision to walk away from something - either an opportunity or a person, place or thing - coupled with chance circumstances really resonated with them in the Netflix Original Series Master of None - Season Two Episode Seven– Door #3 and...

When you're presented with several opportunities in life, how do you decide?

Randy gives us a single strand of wisdom in saying the grass is always greener. Then he comes back with "The grass is greener where you water it." Turg doesn't really understand, so Randy elaborates a bit more to help his buddy out. There are situations that are surrounded by so much circumstance, they don't always have the opportunity to manifest themselves. In some cases, we can see this and decide to just walk away because it's not right for us. Turg and Randy parallel this to the proposition presented to Dev in this episode. Turg doesn't understand why Dev would walk away from something he's always viewed as the ultimate dream. Dev may, in fact, struggle with having enough foresight or commitment to actually endure the difficult situation. Randy thinks - career wise - it was a good decision. So how do the guys relate to this move?

Join Turg and Randy Z as they catch up from a brief recording hiatus (that you would have never known about had we not mentioned it here) and discuss the next episode in the Netflix Original Series "Master of None" - Season Two Episode Six – New York, I Love You and hone in on not only what this episode meant in the actual scheme of things – but on a deeper level – why this episode meant so much to the guys and…

If you whack someone on the head with a metal water bottle, do they make a sound?

Randy shares a story about his travels and one instance in particular that sounds quite intriguing. The guys talk more in depth about how travel really is - in a sense - forces humanity to disconnect. Often times we overlook the circumstances that surround us in that point in time and walk through life with blinders on. But what this episode of Master of None really helped us appreciate was the way the story was told. Turg shares his experiences when feeling the lack of humanity at an airport made him introspect at how impersonal everything really is. Where is the human element? Why do we think our shit matters more than anyone else's shit? Are we really that self absorbed of a society and just disconnect when we see something that doesn't suit our personal preference?

Join Turg and Randy Z as they revisit the next episode in the Netflix Original Series "Master of None" - Season Two Episode Five - The Dinner Party and discuss if relationships that form under curious circumstances are legitimately worth pursuing or if those feelings should be left undisturbed or...

Do you disturb the balance of love and tip the scales in your favor if you really feel a connection to that person?

Turg and Randy discuss their encounters with the balance of love. Looking at relationships from the perspective of a time commitment, is it right to let everything you've invested - time, emotion, life experiences - go to waste for something new? If you're in a committed relationship and encounter a new love, do you pursue it? When others rely on the other person - in a friendship - to be true to their emotions without having it interfere with the outcome of a current relationship, it doesn't always go as planned. Whether or not this has happened to us on our journey through life, it's often difficult to predict how things will play out. There are just too many variables left unaccounted for in these types of situations to know what you would do in that circumstance.

Social media then versus now – what are your desires?

Turg asks Randy how he uses social media now as opposed to back in the day when it first came out. What are we doing differently now that the social media climate has completely changed? Randy gives some insight into how he used social media to try to form connections and turn something hopeful into something real. Unfortunately, it took a while for it to really work out. Turg makes the statement – somethings some things can be presumed or even misunderstood when conducting electronic interactions.

Join Turg and Randy Z as they discuss the core topics portrayed in one of the more controversial episodes featured in the new season of the Netflix Original Series "Master of None" Season Two Episode Three about Religion and...

Turg shares a moment in his life where reflection and religion meet and allow him to dive deep into his inner-most thoughts and emotions. When we actively disrupt life around us, do we acknowledge how it affects those sharing in those moments; when we judge others, do we know we are doing it? Turg asks the question, “Why do we judge others?”. The guys discuss how judging is more societal and gets into the deeper issues we might have within our inner struggle rather than serve as a reflection of our character. Randy discusses how judging might not be a negative in some regards and in a low minority of instances can serve different purposes.

Your thirties serve to be the core foundational years of who you will be for the remainder of your life.

Turg and Randy discuss how the thirties are more structurally important times that help build foundations and support that carry everyone through to the next level. These foundations serve to shape the future and our mindset going into the later years. The guys talk ‘old balls’ and what they really mean in the grand scheme of things. Religion is a large part of foundations as – regardless of where we are in life now – religion has had a hand in shaping our mindset and worldview.
