They Brexit, You Own It
On Your Knees
Get Up, Please
Good evening, listeners! We have an excellent episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with Benjamin Haddad about the reverberations of Britain’s vote to leave the EU before speaking with David Kirby about the ways in which we all pray.
First we welcome back to the show Benjamin Haddad, a research fellow at the Hudson Institute, to discuss Brexit’s fallout. From him we learn about Europe’s reaction to the vote, what this means for the rest of the EU, and what effects the British referendum might have on similar “leave” campaigns in other EU member states.
We’re then joined by David Kirby, a poet and teacher of English at Florida State University, who says that everyone prays, whether they’re aware of it or not. He explains the different ways in which prayer can manifest itself, and grounds the discussion in the perspectives on prayer held by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Montaigne.
