Listen to the last episode:

It’s been 100 years since the publication of The Prophet by Khalil Gibran, a book beloved by everyone from Indira Ghandi to Elvis Presley. What is the story behind one of the most enduring spiritual texts of the Twentieth Century, and why did it strike such a chord? Yahia Lababidi is an Egyptian American poet, essayist and aphorist. His most recent book is Quarantine notes: aphorisms on morality and mortality. Glen Kalem is founder of the Kahlil Gibran Collective and a research historian of Khalil Gibran’s life and work for more than 25 years. He has curated a series of events in New York City and a pop-up exhibition in Melbourne. For more information, visit
