In honor of Valentine’s Day, Lisa and Ted dive into the topic of love in its many forms. They start by checking the legendary history of St. Valentine (1:45) and wonder if maybe St. Patrick is deserving of similar attention (3:19). They ask what the word “love” really means anyway (5:56) and then consider overlaps between love and mindfulness (8:17). Ted wonders if love is why we’re really here on the planet (14:00) and the pair consider the roles of attachment and mutuality in love (16:15). As per the podcast’s mandate, they explore the overlaps between love and improv (23:37) before introducing a few lessons on love from Jesus (34:07). Lisa introduces her idea for diversifying one’s love portfolio (40:42) and they close by considering whether projection qualifies as love (43:19). Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or enjoying the day of hearts alone, we hope you’ll tune in and enjoy the exploration. We do love you!
