Avatar
By Ethan Lipsitz
Every human needs love and acceptance to survive, yet we all seem to have a different definition of what love actually is. This podcast seeks to explore various definitions of love through storytelling and conversations with visionary thinkers, artists, activists, leaders and explorers. We will investigate love through 3 frames: love of self, love in partnership and love in the collective and these episodes will seek to uncover important nuggets of love that will spread into the radio waves and beyond.
