This week, Josh and Dietrich tackle one of their most difficult playlists yet, in no small part because the inspiration is the most unique television show in the last few years. The Good Place featured a mix of philosophical thought and hysterical comedy, all presented with a honest yet unfailingly optimistic look at the human condition. Josh talks about a movie revolving around the idea of justifying your existence on Earth, while Dietrich explores a show that was as popular as its ending was divisive. They look at the remarkable novel Reincarnation Blues, another optimistic comedy by creator Mike Schur, and wrap up with a classic film that got added at the last minute.
