The hosts play with some initial ideas related to art and why we like what we like. Dan explains some of the background behind conversations about art and beauty we will have over the coming months. Don't expect a full and comprehensive lecture. Expect the opening volley in a larger discussion about beauty (since we've talked a bit more about goodness and truth in our first six months). Dan gives some art history background. Jeff talks about beauty in the Bible. We share our top guilty aesthetic pleasures and guilty aesthetic displeasures.
