Thriving in Dystopia

Ep60: New Season! Tracing Revolutionary Love in Our Lives

October 21, 2021

Nadir masterfully adds harmony to Bob’s enthusiastic but moribund version of Kansas’ Carry On You Wayward Son.  The brothers then discuss Halloween costume ideas (both influenced by different TV shows but landing on similar ideas).


They introduce the theme of season 8: the 9 practices of Valerie Kaur’s revolutionary love.  They will discuss each one in turn as it shows up in their lives.  The revolutionary love compass outlines the 3 domains (love for others, opponents, and self) and levels of revolutionary love.  


In episode 1, the Crew delves into love for others at the personal level, which is wonder.


Wonder is about curiosity and openness, and the brother ask each other about their first memories of being wonderstruck and the most recent experiences of wonder.  They end with some deeper reflections on wonder and love.

The joke that got Bob, “A giraffe eating cherries.”
