This week, we'll look at the choice each of us must make between the physical and the moral, happiness and virtue. How we choose to define the greater good sets the path we follow in life. The great challenge is to find a way to bring these mutually exclusive, incompatible values together and find some way of reconciling them.
We'll hear from Canola Tenderfoot, Salaryman, Scanlan, I Awake and Elika. I'm Jim Nye.
We'll begin in Bristol, Trip Hop's epicenter with the Viki & Owen Shirley. They record as Canola Tenderfoot creating a blend of soulful cleansing melodic grooves. Here they help define the greater good with 'Summum Bonum'
