Episode 230: Be Happy (Lars von Trier's "Melancholia")

February 8th, 2022

David and Tamler sink deeper and deeper into Melancholia, Lars von Trier’s harrowing and stunningly beautiful depiction of depression, anxiety, and a wedding reception that just won’t end. They bring Freud’s “Mourning and Melancholia” into the conversation and confront the question: what if the depressed and anxious people are right?

Plus Whoopi, M&Ms, baby brain waves, Rogan – we empty out the opening segment Slack. 

Note: We recorded the opening segment before the latest development in the Joe Rogan story, but we briefly address that in the promo segment right after the break.
