Speaking with Joy

Speaking with Joy. A podcast about art, culture, character, and Scotland.

One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.
— Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This podcast aims to help listeners do just that. Each week Joy explores three pieces of art (visual, literary, and musical) centred around a theme. An arts lover and doctoral candidate residing near the North Sea of Scotland, Joy believes in the power of story and beauty to help shape us into well-rounded people and to help us think with complexity and compassion about the world. This podcast is for those who love art, who want to educate themselves by engaging with good books and beauty, and who want to hear the occasional escapades of an overly idealistic doctoral student who loves tea and trains. So sit down with your favourite hot beverage and enjoy an hour of culture and conversation.

Tune in weekly with a cup of tea and an enthusiasm for beauty.
