    Episode 62: Meant to Be or Chosen to Be?

    Episode 62: Meant to Be or Chosen to Be?

    As promised in our last episode, we are digging into the timeless debate of fate vs. Free will this week. How do we see elements of both of these in the world? In fiction? In our own lives? What bigger questions does this debate call to mind? What does it fully mean to believe in one over the other? Is there a possibility of combining the two? It's one of our classic rambling philosophical discussions this week, and we can't wait to share it all with you!

    Episode 61: What We Read (or should have read) in High School

    Episode 61: What We Read (or should have read) in High School

    Happy 2020, Sapiophiles! We're back for a new decade of episodes! As it has been an entire decade since we finished college, we thought we'd take a look back at how the things we read, learned, and discussed in school affected us. This week, we are breaking down the books we read (or should have read) in High School. What themes pop up often, and how effective are they when filtered through the teenage mind? Is the standard "high school reading list" the best way to impart these lessons? How might we change the curriculum? How do the lessons in these books take on new meanings as we get older? Join us as we dive into literature and the teenage mind, share our favorite quotes and themes, and think back to our early reading experiences! And don't worry if you haven't read all these books... this is accessible and understandable for you as well!

    Episode 59: Holiday A to Z- Free Associations

    Episode 59: Holiday A to Z- Free Associations

    December is here, and that means that the Holiday season is everywhere. After some positive feedback from our free association episode back in September, we decided to challenge ourselves and choose a December, winter, Christmas, or other Holiday-related word for each letter of the alphabet. These words led to some fun free associations- from existential thoughts, to kangaroos, to breaking into song! Join us on our exploration of intelligent, creative, and often completely random holiday fun!

What is important for us to remember when giving back? Find out this week!

    Episode 57: What We Wish We Knew at 18

    At 18, we are made to feel like we should know what we're doing. And... spoiler alert! None of us do. Back in the lovely year of 2006, 18 year old Caela and Chelsea first met... and a LOT has happened since. This week, we take a look back at our young adult selves, and dive into what we wish we knew then. It's a reflective and thought-provoking episode in which you get to find out about our younger selves and take a look back at yours.
