Season 1, Episode 4
Karl aims to get to the bottom of his relative lack of a vocation, and visits an 85-year-old Japanese inventor to discover whether he has what it takes to become a genius. On the opposite end of the spectrum, he hangs out with a self-made millionaire in South Africa and jets off to Los Angeles to strut his stuff in a Hollywood fashion show.
Season 1, Episode 3
Why do people have children? That's the puzzler bothering world-weary philosopher Karl this week. Traveling the globe, he tries to understand why couples feel the need to become parents, visiting a fertility festival in Japan and a natural birthing center in Bali - where he lends a hand with a delivery - and meets an LA couple looking to take the next step.
Karl finds a unique way to relieve stress: smashing cars.
