Hopper Stone

Hopper Stone (Still Photographer for Film/TV, Photojournalist) visits the show, and Nicholas surprises him by being willing to mention the film they met on - Mardi Gras: Spring Break - a film, shot in New Orleans, that was never released in theaters (Read: It was very fun, but it didn't turn out great).  Hopper riffs humorously about growing up Reformed Jewish, but then goes on to tell a heartfelt and enlightening story about how his fathers' death inspired him to embrace the traditional Jewish practices of mourning - in particular, the ritual of saying Kaddish.  Hopper talks about how it demonstrated to him not only how to grieve properly and deeply for his father, but also how to end the period of grieving, and begin to re-enter the living world. 

Something I studied more after this conversation: The differences between Atheism and Agnosticism
