The making of Bucket Lists, the having of #lifegoals, the pursuit of pleasure – what role does pleasure play in giving our lives meaning? Is it central? This week, the dynamic trio discusses hedonism and pleasure, Christian adaptations a la John Piper, neurochemistry, conditioning, and whether or not the small things ought to command at least a little of our attention. A “I Have Never” segment then reveals just how cosmopolitan each of them are.
