    Home - It's Tearing Us Apart

    Home - It's Tearing Us Apart

    Sheryl Crow's haunting song "Home" pulls all the strings of longing and belonging into a sweeping journey of love, loss and coming to terms with the reality of our choices. Avrum and Ellie get into discussions around the meaning of home for each of us, what happens when the facades fall down, and do we really know what we want to build, and if we don't how will we ever get there?

    We Don't Talk Anymore - What Was All of This For

    Charlie Puth’s song “We Don’t Talk Anymore” wasn’t Avrum's favourite but Ellie insisted and lo and behold a really interesting conversation came out of it around what is the purpose of relationships and what happens when a couple is left with nothing to say to each other.
