64 - Exploring the 4 Stages of Life
A recent Captain Sinbad video called "4 regrets from my early 20s" inspired us to make an episode of the podcast all about the 4 stages. This is  based on the Hindu 4 ashramas. These 4 stages are the student phase, homemaker phase, retired phase, and spiritual phase. While we mainly break down the student phase which is the first 25-year block, this episode includes a deep discussion about the meaning of life as per usual.
