E526 Going Deeper with Justin Baldoni Plus Prince Harry, The Menu, and Death
Welcome back to another episode of The Viall Files, Going Deeper Edition! Today we are joined by actor, director, producer, speaker, and entrepreneur, Justin Baldoni! Before getting into the interview, we break down Prince Harry’s 60 Minutes Interview with Anderson Cooper and the aftermath of his appearance. We reflect on feeling empathy for Harry, worried if he’s opened too many cans of worms, donating to charity with money that isn’t yours, and acting out after repressing everything for years. We then break down the movie “The Menu” and get into the film’s depiction of death and debating if an afterlife exists. We then bring on Justin for his interview, talking about insecurity, interfacing with masculinity, learning from your father, and the importance of young boys learning emotional intelligence. We also talk about the difference between acceptance and accountability, writing about being enough, combatting the feeling of directionlessness, how men can truly be vulnerable, and raising a son with empathy in mind. We also bring on our Texting Office Hours caller who after learning that she was cheated on, takes extreme public measures. Recognizing she may have been toxic, our caller wonders how to best move forward from the situation. We then close by talking about what makes Nick and Justin cry.
“No one told me I was enough.”
