Welcome! Everything is fine. Maybe. Because we're talking about The Good Place! Mostly, we're talking about philosophy, ethics, and our personal moral failings and strengths. It's a bit heavy.

Warnings: This episode is censored, but contains numerous uses of "hell" as well as some conversations about the fear of death.
