Total Eclipse of the Heart, Alanis Morrisette, and high school reunions are some of the stops along a stroll through the respective pasts of our hosts this week. In this episode, Jeff, Mona & Allen conclude their secular vs sacred series with a discussion on the sacred in terms of selves. What makes a person sacred? Can one person be more sacred than another? Do we confuse the sacredness of a person’s status, position or accomplishments with the sacredness of the person? These are all questions, and more, our hosts attempt to tackle, before finishing off with another round of Name that Sound.
