About Us

The Obvious Question explores questions that may seem fairly obvious but are seldom answered. Each week, one of us (the hosts - Joe, Mike, or Bob) comes with a question for the other two and we see how deep we can go with it. What's your answer? Join the discussion at obviousquestion.wordpress.com.

Breathe In Breathe Out

Is "somebody" looking out for me?

Is there someone (or something) looking out for us when we need them? I say it in the intro, I don’t believe in guardian angels or old men with white beards in the sky, but when I was really despairing, I asked the air for help, and dammit if it doesn’t seem to me that something answered the call. Was this just coincidence? A story I’m making up? What if I’ve noticed it happen a bunch of times in my life? Check out the conversation and then let us know what you think at obviousquestion.wordpress.com or on our FaceBook page @obviousquestion Subscribe to The Obvious Question podcast here, iTunes, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Is "somebody" looking out for me?

What if we treated our heroes and villains the same?

What would life look like if we treated the people in our lives who we perceive as bad people - the villains, and those who we place on pedestals (our heroes) the same. What if we were able to even-out our approach - giving the villains the benefit of the doubt and some empathy, and the heroes a sense of appreciation but without fawning or pressure - would the world shift in some way? Would it make a difference?

Is there any hope for humanity?

Humanity, our species, is facing severe threats - climate change and ever intensifying weather, antibiotic resistant diseases, political instability and disconnection, the list goes on and on, and all the while, our own population is expected to grow to 8 billion by 2024. Is there any hope that we’ll be able to align and confront our problems before they overcome us?

Am I the person I used to be?

As we grow older, do we remain the same person, or are we somehow someone else? Certainly we change - our looks, opinions, personalities - sometimes these things change drastically...but that doesn’t make us different people? If we're the same, then what is the thing that remains the same?

How much does the media control the outcome?

How would life be different if we didn’t have news at all? How much of what happens in the world is created or influenced by how events preceding it are reported? To some extent, we know from the media, that mass shooters are encouraged by the coverage of previous mass shooters. What role does the media play in uncovering topics that people need to learn about, and how much do they exploit events, for ratings and advertising, that are better left uncovered?

Must I choose between the present and the future?

This week, we explore if it is better to live life with a strong aspiration towards the future - trying to build something, achieve something, or leave a lasting legacy, or if it is enough to simply be deeply connected to the present moment.

Is it OK for guys to cry?

We find, in our culture, that men can freely engage in any emotion, as long as it doesn’t involve crying. Why is this? When did we learn that we have to give up crying as a way we express ourselves? Are we cool with it? Are we missing out on something if we hold it back?

What's my purpose?

So often on our show, we’re asking questions that are really just circling the one big question that we all have - “What is it all about?”, or “Why am I here?” This week, we get closer to that big question by asking about our purpose - over and above everything else, is there something that we’re meant to do? If so, what is it?

How do you teach a kid to be themself?

How do you teach a kid to be OK with who they are - to feel good, to be confident, to do what they want to do? All too often, kids are driven into certain activities, behaviors, or even career paths based on what adults think is best, but may not be what the kid wants. How do you guide a kid into a life that they would say, “I’m happy with this.”?
