Comfort: An Atlas for Body and Soul
Comfort is a universal human need. But in our increasingly complex and overstressed world, we can overlook this important aspect of our lives – or employ artificial comfort substitutes that can have unintended consequences for our health. On today’s broadcast we’ll talk with the authors of two new books on modern day comfort – and the important lesson we learn when it is absent in our lives.
 

Guests:
Father Brett C. Hoover, author of “Comfort: An Atlas for Body and Soul.” He is a priest and member of the Paulists. In 2001, he cofounded and then served as editor of Busted Halo, a spirituality website for young seekers.

 

Donia Bijan, author of “Maman’s Homesick Pie.” She is a chef and owner of the former L’Amie Donia restaurant in Palo Alto, CA.
