12/08/14 - No subject in human history has been more thoroughly examined, yet it’s still as little understood as it was in the time of Shakespeare.  On Monday’s Topical Currents, we visit with the New York Times “Modern Love” columnist, Daniel Jones.  He’s had some 50,000 letters cross his desk – deluged with scheming cheaters, hopeless romantics and fierce devotees.  He’s written, Love Illuminated: Exploring Life’s Most Mystifying Subject. Join us for Topical Currents Monday at 1pm.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
