Speaker 1 (00:02):
Imagine you ask two people the same exact set of
open ended questions. Even though they may start in the
same place, their answers will invariably go down entirely different roads,
depending on their experiences, their environments, and the way they
see the world and beyond. But maybe there are some
common threads that tie us together. I'm Mini Driver, and

(00:23):
this was the idea I set out to explore in
my podcast Mini Questions. I ask every guest the same
set of seven questions. Together, we hear about the parts
of their life that bring them comfort, the questions that
keep them up at night, the moments when my life
changed direction, and how they truly see themselves. From author
and front women of indie band Japanese Breakfast Michelle's Honor.

Speaker 2 (00:45):
We had dated for about a year and a half
when my mom got sick. You know, getting married was
never really that important of a thing for me, but
I knew it was a tremendously important thing for my mom,
and that if I ever got married and she wasn't there,
it would just destroy me. So we threw together a
wedding three weeks before my mother passed away. I mean,
I told him, well, just get divorced if it doesn't

(01:07):
work out, you know, like we'll be like young hip divorces.

Speaker 1 (01:11):

Speaker 3 (01:36):
My dad dying was a big one because I was there.
You're not thinking about how he pissed you all. You're
not thinking about he was an alcoholic. You're just thinking
about the fact that I loved him. He was my
father and he's gone. It whittles life down to absolutely
the essentials of really what makes a wife? It leveled me.

Speaker 1 (02:01):
And now I am excited to announce many questions is
coming back for a third season. This year, we bring
a whole new group of guests to answer the same
seven questions, including actress and star of the mega hit
sitcom Friends, Courtney Cox.

Speaker 5 (02:17):
It takes a lot of bravery to end something that
has so much passion or any kind of relationship. It's
so much easier just to stay and ride things out
and make excuses, and you can't go around it, so
you just go through it. This is a roadblock, it's
kind of catch you down the road. Go through it,
deal with it.

Speaker 1 (02:36):
Comedian writer and star of the series Catastrophe, Rob Delaney.

Speaker 4 (02:40):
I shouldn't feel guilty about my son's death. He died
of a brain tumor. But the sets of smell part
of my brain, the fight or flight part, is like, yeah,
but he died before you. It's your fault. You did
something wrong. You didn't dig a whole miles under the
earth in Sweden to try to find a friggin route
that you could get essence of to cure his cancer.

Speaker 5 (03:01):
You didn't.

Speaker 4 (03:02):
It's your fault, you know, And so you need to
know that you're going to feel the guilt if your
kid dies before you. It's part of what happens when
your kid dies. Intellectually, you'll understand that it's not your fault,
but you'll still feel guilty.

a dead.
