It's episode 69 so let's talk about LOVE.

Writer and philosopher Alain de Botton is in the country to promote his (brilliant) new book The Course of Love: an exploration of the confusing ideas romanticism serves up for us. He thinks love is a serious matter indeed and one worth examining closely, and in this chat we talk about its effects, its position in our hard-wiring and its many forms. 

Also, in the wake of Brexit and Trump, Alain reflects on how emotional intelligence might better inform our public debate.
