Episode 4: The Labor of Delight

A conversation with poet Ross Gay

Episode 4: The Labor of Delight

In July 2018, poet, teacher, and author Ross Gay had an idea—what might happen if he wrote about something he found delightful as a daily practice for a whole year striaght. His idea grew into The Book of Delights, a selection from his yearlong meandering through the experiences, observations, and reflections that arose from his daily “essayettes” and developing “delight radar”.
 
Today, we have a conversation with Ross Gay about the world of delights.
