219: For Valentine's Day - Stoicism and Romantic Relationships

Andi Sciacca and Greg Sadler come on as guest hosts for a Valentine's Day episode of the podcast, discussing Stoicism and its applications within the sphere of romance, relationships, dating, and marriage. In the course of their conversation, they discuss how Stoic principles and practices have helped them each individually and within their own marriage. Among the topics they discuss is how Stoicism can help with problematic emotions, assumptions, and dynamics, and whether there is a risk of Stoicism taking the spark or passion out of relationships.
