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 a theme through the lens fo three pieces of art: one visual, one literary, and one musical. 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. In a world of meaningless newsfeeds, this podcast aims to be a spot of sanity and education.

This podcast is for those who need a spot of hope, delight, and education in their week. It is for those who love art. It is for those who wish they knew more about literature, art, music, and theology, but don't know where to start. This podcast is for people who, for whatever reason, want to hear the occasional escapades of an overly idealistic doctoral student who loves tea and trains. 

Tune in weekly with a cup of tea.
