You are all in for a treat this episode! Casper begins the episode by reading a Roald Dahl story for our younger (and older!) listeners. Vanessa begins the live show with a story about her mother abandoning her brothers and her at the grocery line when she realized she forgot something.
In the 30 Second Recap, Casper just says a lot of disparate words in a row. Vanessa says coherent sentences, but somehow people vote for Casper. People of Minneapolis, please describe why you made this very perplexing choice. Was it the accent?
Vanessa and Casper go back to the question of integrity and loyalty. Vanessa talks about how practicing loyalty towards Harry’s friends allows Harry to be loyal to strangers. Casper interweaves this with idea behind a Buddhist meditation practice, where you think about yourself, then someone you love, then a stranger, and then someone you struggle with.
In Pardes, Vanessa and Casper explore small magical moments that you experience in daily life. Vanessa explores the magic of Horcruxes and how it is our responsibility to use objects for good. The guest this week, Travis Salisbury, tells a very charming story about dog walking.
