Apparently the consequence of having a day job when there's a wicked cold going around the northern part of the Lone Star State is that you might catch that cold by going into the office.
The Gorillamen are in different stages of that cold, so please ignore any snarfiness in this episode. Also, we're just going to get straight to what we talked about this episode:

Radiohead once sang about optimism.
It went a little like this:
We're a bit more optimistic than that, but about certain issues...probably not by much.
This week we will fill your hearts with hope as we talk about...optimism...
* * *
We begin by discussing our own optimism...and when we were first introduced to the concept. Then we talk about the most optimistic people we knew growing up -- and who claims the title today.
We chat a bit about if it's easier or harder to maintain optimism as we age...and then devote some time to whether or not we're optimistic about the United States.
Find out where our optimism ends -- and what we try [and sometimes fail] to be optimistic about.
We answer these questions: Can relentless optimism be damaging? Or annoying? And then we offer our advice for someone who is not naturally optimistic.
And, of course, we wrap it all up talking about the future of optimism.
