Ex-NBA basketball player, Paul Shirley joins Kristen to talk about how he used sports and basketball as therapy as a child and how it still helps him as an adult. He also talks about the OCD he had to have in order to make it to the professional level, having a father as his biggest critic and how he goes to therapy once a month. They also talk about dating with depression and do a few segments including "Who's Sadder" and "Schizofilmia" where Kristen talks about a movie NOT to watch but a book to read instead.
