This week we're joined by Brandon Levi. Brandon is a former Muay Thai fighter and owner of the famous Evolution Muay Thai in New York City. Brandon talks about why he learned to fight as a boy, why he tries not to get into fights and how sick he gets as a coach of other fighters. Later, we get an advice question from a man who is struggling with how to cope with his girlfriend's feelings of insecurity in the relationship.

This week's question:
I keep having this difficult conversation with my significant other and I don’t know what to do. We’ve been together for 3 years and ever since we started dating, she has been emphatic that she never wants kids. I don’t know what I want and I’ve been open about that. Under the right circumstances, I could see my mind changing. She reacts really badly to that potential uncertainty - the other day, she asked if I would “make” her have kids, which of course I flat out rejected by saying “I would never ever make you have children”. But still she has a lot of anxiety. We live in this grey area where it’s sort of like, I want to be with her more than I want children, but what if that ever switched? She’s anxious I’m going to change my mind and leave her. How can I give her reassurance about something that I don’t even know? It’s making it impossible to enjoy our relationship. The other night, we were watching Children of Men and I couldn't enjoy the movie because I was stuck wondering if she was trying to bring up the subject of babies again! How do we move past this??
