Episode #50 with Special Guest Matthew Alper

Well here we are at episode 50! For this milestone we are joined by another special guest, author Matthew Alper. Matthew has written two fascinating books: The God Part of the Brain outlines his theory that religion is an evolved adaptation to help us deal with the pain of existence. His most recent book, Icarus of Brooklyn is an autobiography of the events that brought him to his theory on religion. Matthew joins us to chat about the ideas in both books and by the end of the episode there is a nihilistic pissing match between Matthew and Louie, as we debate just who is the more nihilistic!
