Schmindfulness with a Lucky Listener
What happens when a listener of the Meditate This! Podcast blows out the candles on their birthday cake? Their wish comes true and they appear as a guest on Mindfulness Schmindfulness. We can only assume that's what happened as one lucky listener was invited to the MT! Studios for an interrogation of her life. Meet Ryan, both skeptic and seeker, as she shares with us her life struggles and some very interesting signposts along the way. Ryan now says she never realized she could be this happy in life, which we assume has nothing to do with listening to our podcast.

Pete and Jay
What happens when excited Meditate This! fans across the United States get a chance to ask Pete and Jay any questions they want? Well, let's just say the U.S. Postal Service had to work a lot of overtime last month—like they do during the Christmas deluge, delivering letters full of dreams and inquiry to Santa Claus. But it was all well worth it because we've got answers to some of your deepest and darkest questions (well, not that dark). So join Pete and Jay as they respond to listeners who wonder how they can de-stress, find more time during the day, and, you know, what exactly happens when we die. Just another day at the office for Pete and Jay. Enjoy! (Note: no reindeer were used in the making of this episode.)

Anger from All Angles
When was the last time you felt really angry? Oh? You don't get angry? Cool.
But we don't believe you.
We asked Americans what makes them angry and they responded. We picked the four most tantalizing answers you could ever imagine!
In episode 31, Pete and Jay break down why anger is as natural as feeling tired or hungry, and how blasting heavy metal might be a perfect way to manage it.
