Ep 84: What is beautiful about life?
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines beauty as "qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses, or exalts the mind or spirit." When each difficult day simply rolls into the next, how can one find the beauty there?

This episode was recorded before a live audience in Melbourne's CBD in August 2017.
