Socrates in Love - Beautiful Disturbances

An episode in which M talks about a book you've probably never heard of because foreign literature seldom makes it into the US market and even when a book is... Good like finding it. But Socrates in love is one of M's favorite books, so she wants to talk about it.

And also about love. That's an appealing topic, right?
