014 - Theft, Drugs and Rock N' Roll
We're turning this podcast up to 11! Carson catches someone stealing at his shop, and Brett is faced with inquiry taking him to places he doesn't necessarily want to go. The duo then look at Yogani's "Evolutionary Stages of Mind" which leads to a discussion on drug induced states and their relation to states found on the spiritual path. Other topics include sensory deprivation tanks and meditation experiences. \m/

The part about the mouse possibly killing people was my favorite :) You guys are so awesome. Carson, I think how you dealt with the kid stealing from you was absolutely brilliant. If we had more people on this planet that cared about how our kids felt and why they do stupid shit, the world would be a better place. I bow to your wisdom.

Brett, your candor about the problem you had when drinking and that you understood that you didn't have a problem with drinking all the time, just when to stop, gives me a little bit more insight into my other half. Thank you.

I just want you both to know that you make a difference, and I appreciate how honest, funny and straight up you both are :)

I have to agree with you. For me, it is so unusual to come across 2 guys that are highly intelligent, highly self aware, and genuinely good guys that are willing to throw their warts out there on a podcast. When I listened to Carson talk about what a dick he was to his wife when they got lost hiking in podcast 13, I completely related to it and completely admired his honesty.

It's the ol' "blame game" thing. I'm infamous for it. It ties in to the "I'm never wrong and can't admit I'm sorry" thing actually. Instead of admitting fault I instinctually move towards finding someone to blame. It's an ugly tendency to say the least.

The discussion on the pure joy of finding porn magazines in the woods brought back so many good memories. I have to think the people putting the magazines out there were other kids too scared to hide them in their houses. Suckers. I do have one bad memory though. There was this one brunette in Playboy or Penthouse that I absolutely fell in love with. I kept her between my mattress and box spring. I don’t know why I just had her picture torn out instead of the entire magazine, but I remember bringing the picture to a day of sledding one time. Of course I had to show her off. Eventually one girl asked if she could see what I was showing around, and she fucking ripped the picture in half. That was a bad day.

Regarding the shoplifter in Carson’s store, I think you handled it perfectly. I went through a ridiculous tear of stealing between 16 and 17 years old. I was really, really bad. Outside of some minor exceptions such as stealing candy and soda from a small shop owner, I still had enough of a conscience to not steal from an individual. I didn't feel guilty ripping off K-mart or Macy’s, but there was no way in hell I would steal from a neighbor. So by doing what you did with that kid, you made the kid realize you are an individual busting his ass instead of a faceless store who doesn't really need the money. That definitely would have worked on me.

Haha best (and worst) ever! Its a fucking bummer that the innocence surrounding stories like this seems to have been thrown out the window with the accessibility to porn on the internet. Call me old-fashioned, but I think there are some things that should still be somewhat of a "rite of passage", and this is one of them. Will be interesting to see how it evolves from here.
