It’s been a while. We are bringing you some new conversations soon. But this time, we are re-releasing our episode with Claudia Pech. Back in December, we talked about Trump’s comments on Mexicans, the difficulties of being an undocumented immigrant, and the state of the conversation surrounding immigration.

After listening to a lecture by Sonia Nazario (Pullitzer Prize winner) on immigration for the E. N. Thompson Forum on World Issues at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I decided to re-release this episode and go buy her bestselling book, “Enrique’s Journey.”

This week on the podcast, Slade sat down with Micah Robinson to discuss our guest’s journey with music. They had an amazing conversation, of which I can’t say much because Slade doesn’t want me to. He says you should just go listen to it! (I agree.)

Check out this week’s recommendations:

García Márquez’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold

Amelie (2001) – recommended by Hannah Ashburn

A couple weeks ago, I (Enrique) wrote about those infamous Facebook debates. For this episode, Slade and I expand on the subject and share our experiences trying to avoid such discussions and sometimes taking part in them. Why can’t we be more civilized? How can we engage in healthy conversation? I don’t know, but perhaps Slade does.

Also, in this episode we introduce two new sections: book recommendation and film recommendation (maybe we need some creative names).

This week’s book and film recommendations (check them out!):

Peter Rollins’ The Idolatry of God (recommended by Slade)

Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Amores Perros (recommended by me)

Why is this blog titled “Of lovers and fools”? This week on the podcast, I welcome Slade Lane as my co host to discuss how the blog and podcast got their name. We talked 4th of July, graphic novels/comic books, copying García Márquez, and, our favorite political commentator, Sean Hannity.

What’s coming next? I have no idea.
