Therapy for modernity via art, music and literature
Feeling down? Robert Harisson has an antidote, and it's very effective.
This show has opened up so many worlds to me. The range of topics is incredible and the depth of conversation is just at the right level. i haven't listened to every show (although I'm not far off), but each one I have has left me richer for it. My only suggestion for improvement is to change the song in the intro.
The only criticism I have is the long wait between semesters. I would love to have a program that directly critiques the new militant atheism that is becoming a force that may be unduly influencing the zeitgeist of our age. The preparation Harrison must do is phenomenal. His observations are nuanced and intelligent. His approach is one of respect for his guests even though it is obvious he does not entirely agree with all of their propositions.
