Season 2: What is Love? Ep 8: Rilke's "Letters to a Young Poet"
In Season 2 episode 8 we ask the question "What is Love?" in Rainer Maria Rilke's book Letters to a Young Poet. thesacredprofane is a podcast that asks big questions in small places. Each season revolves around one question and each episode in that season applies that question to a specific "text" from philosophy/theology, art/pop culture, or politics/society. The question for season 2 is "What is Love?" and we explore everything from Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet to rock ballads of the 80s. The hosts of the podcast hold PhDs in humanities related fields and teach serious classes about serious stuff...but they try not to take themselves too seriously. The podcast is a place to do what we love and have fun doing it.
