Week 88 Spotlight: It is what it is
Part of being a supportive friend is finding words of comfort when someone you care about is dealing with problems in their life. We’ve all been there – someone we love pours their heart out to us, sharing a conflict in their life and suddenly we must try to make it all better.
These days, it seems like most Americans turn to the phrase: “It is what it is.” It’s a phrase that has been sweeping the nation; one that has become an instant cliche. It sounds deep and meaningful, but really is just a silly, meaningless phrase and Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle are tired of it. This week, they plead with you fine listeners to stop saying it.
What do they think you should say instead? Why do they have so much man-love for Bruce Willis? What causes them both to giggle like schoolchildren at the end of the show? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
