    So, this episode was AWESOME (not unlike the rest). I’m teaching a class on Saturday and want to use the quote Eric shared from “The Book of Joy.” I don’t have time to read the whole book by Saturday, and it’s an awful lot to transcribe, and I’ve searched for it online to no avail. Would it be possible to get a page number? Or at least the chapter it came from? That would be… awesome.

    Also, I care about your kids. I don’t, however, care about people’s dogs. So, thanks for not sharing stories about dogs.
