Show Notes

Aden Debord, 21, and Jim Newman, 73, engage in a philosophical discussion of the benefits of expressing deep emotions quickly and clearly as an aid to communication. Actors, of course, train to display a multitude of emotions with great ease and clarity. Aden suggests that perhaps the average man or woman becomes an actor too, though with the goal of concealing true emotions behind a mask.

But the gift is always balanced-out by a curse. For instance, Aden believes his best laid plans are always doomed to come to nothing. Jim Newman, 73, expands on Aden's theory. He asks whether, say, the gift of creativity always comes with a corresponding downside. ...
