That's one helluva headline. And it's what we discuss in this episode. 

The Levy Bros. talk about the idea of chivalry in today's world. Is chivalry slowly dying, and is that a good thing or not?

Dan recaps a date that he thought went really well, only to get friend zoned the next day. AGAIN. He asked the woman when she felt they'd just be friends, and she said during the date, and that their goodnight kiss — which Dan took as a great sign for the future — was uncomfortable. 

Yet she didn't stop him. And so, Dan asks the question that threads the first 49 minutes: Is he a hopeless romantic, or is he a predator?

Is he a person who ignores red flags and falls for people too quickly, or someone who doesn't care how the other person feels about him, so long as his needs are met?

Is there a sense of entitlement that comes with chivalry? And in 2021, is that something we can change?

The 49th minute starts a highly-spirited (pun) conversation on religion, faith and God. Scott is finding his faith, saying that he feels his doctor that will help his back is "a soldier of a higher power."

Does everything happen for a reason? And if so, why do people get punished for doing bad things? Or is there free will? And how does a higher power fit in? This is a can't miss 10 minutes that may change your mind about one, or both, of the Levy Bros.
