About this Episode

The Jacksway Collective

Self-reflection and self-criticism is difficult. Often times, we find ourselves perusing through life without taking a step back and recognizing potential faults or areas where things went wrong. This concept is taken to its extreme in John Cheever's "The Swimmer." Oliver, Gordon, and Jhana weigh in on Ned's journey as he attempts to swim his way across the county and return home.

To start the discussion, Gordon asks whether or not Monogomy is still a valid form of organizing modern relationships. He puts forward a paper that suggests otherwise. What do these three modern med have to say about relationships in all their forms? Listen to find out!
