“Love is older than doubt, so curiosity is older than doubt. Creation comes from curiosity.”
Hari Alluri joins the show to share poetic musings on everything from the concept of home to masculinity, weaving his own poetry between and into the threads of conversation that center creativity, humility, strength and radical love.
This is an invitation to you, dear listener, to engage in mutual aid with each of our guests! If you enjoyed the show, and you have the means, please consider donating–thank you!
