“Robert Harrison’s trenchant discussion of the beauty and meaning found in the literature of life’s deepest desires, nuanced needs (including their much richer and more complicated ordinariness) and often complex qualities, aspects, and distinctions, raise this podcast above most others.
His enthusiasm for the fun that’s found through interviews and reading great books belies a concern for what’s missing amid the popularly political and intensely conflictual media discourse and provides a different picture from what we tend to think is the case.
Harrison’s captivatingly plain (and paradoxically simple) discussion of ideas and the importance books play in providing depth and meaning to our daily existence (as well as the permission to question what it all means) gives a sense and sort of corrective to the perspective and complex identity we hold of ourselves and the purpose of this all too human condition.
Simply put, it is an eminently listenable and compelling podcast.”
