Screaming Thank You at the Waterfall with Cameron Gillette

Language is a box. Dogma is a box. Comedian Cameron Gillette makes a strong case against the latter, but unfortunately, we had to use language to do this episode. Cameron and I bond over our memories of Christian weightlifting performers, then he tells me about the mortifying moment that sparked his first depression and a spiritual experience at a waterfall.

Check out the extended episode at patreon.com/davemaher with bonus intro, extended segments, and Cameron's "Funeral Planning" segment.
