Episode #3: Thursday, October 23rd at 9pmBroadcasting live with gratitude from Alexis Mitchell's studio in Toronto's West End. This month, we’re focusing on pain and release, release and pain, repeat.  Looking, listening, feeling, watching, wailing.  By loving ourselves through struggle and mourning, we find the deepest compassion we know:

- a new feature in the Republic: oral reading of an image that’s been on my mind by Nasrin Himada, writer and film curator. Nasrin will bridge the aural and the ocular for us, describing an image of her choice in fine detail for your hungry ears to transmit to your wild imagining mind

- from the Archive: 1997's Beloved Community: bell hooks and Cornel West discuss thier respectful disagreement as the "beginning of a fuller, deeper love" in their loving, committed comradeship

- readings from Hafiz, Tara Brach and music from Cheryl L'Hirondelle, Ferguson October and more
