Tangentially Speaking is dedicated to the idea that good conversation is organic, uncensored, revelatory, and free to go down unexpected paths with unconventional people.
Episode details

Thoughts while driving:

— Why are teenagers so unhappy?

— Are we drowning in a bullshit tsunami?

— Shouldn’t there be a word for the current partner of your ex?

— Are there love songs written to a former partner?

Music: “Brightside of the Sun,” by Basin and Range; “Can You Get to That?,” by Funkadelic; “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
