Season 19: Episode 1

The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. The first two are easy to understand. But the Holy Ghost? What's his gig? It turns out to be a question that has most people stumped. Writer Barbara Nichol set out to find an answer. 

For more on the show and this week's guests...


If you close your eyes and try to conjure up an image of the Holy Ghost, what appears? Perhaps you see a dove, or Casper, or the Ghost of Christmas Past. We're just not sure. In our human world, this would be called bad branding. Barbara Nichol wanted to know why the Holy Ghost is so misunderstood. Her documentary is called Who is the Holy Ghost? 

You can listen to some of Barbara's previous documentaries here and here

Later in the show, the philosopher and writer Albert Camus said ... "without (it), life goes rotten.  But when (it) is soulless, life stifles and dies."  He was talking about work. 

Roman Krznaric is our guest. He would like you to ponder a question:  is it possible to approach the idea of work with a somewhat more inspired attitude than "just be thankful you have a pay cheque"?  

Roman Krznaric is a founding member of The School of Life in London, England. He is the author of How to Find Fulfilling Work.
