Ben and Jason sit down to recap the last couple of weeks, which were definitely loaded to the brim with challenges. Jason found out some crazy news about his family of origin -- and decided to start doing some research in order to settle rumors that were floating around. Meanwhile, Ben had a difficult week as a dad, but ultimately found a meaningful way to connect with his daughter. Listen as Jason challenges Ben about how much (or how little) he shares about his therapy sessions, something that led to an "off the mic" conversation after we stopped recording this episode.
