The Book of Huey Podcast

The Book of Huey Podcast has the pleasure of introducing you to our hosts, Huey Booker and Trixie Summerborn. Though both from Cleveland, Ohio, they didn’t meet and become friends until they connected in the Washington, D.C. area in 2015 when Huey “swan-dived face-first” in Trixie’s DMs. They are now the best of friends, talk all the time, and want to share their conversations with the world.

They have a dedicated aim and focus. “Huey and I have like the best conversations always talking about love, life, sex, relationships,” Trixie said. “I think I have a unique perspective. I’m really excited to meet more people during this process… hear different people’s opinions.”


Huey echoed Trixie’s thoughts in that he’s most excited about the types of conversations that [they’re] going to have and made it very clear that he’s no relationship guru. He likes to talk to people, debate, and probe, particularly about the show’s 5 topics – love, sex, dating, relationships, and all the fuckery in-between. It’s most important to him that The Book of Huey is a “safe ass space where people don’t feel judgement, they don’t feel condemned, and we can just talk about the different lifestyles that are available, the different opportunities that people have.”


They don’t pretend to be relationship gurus. Huey and Trixie are dedicated to speaking from the heart as they live and share from their own personal experiences. For example, Trixie recently decided to take a break from dating because she “really wasn’t meeting the type of men that [she] should be developing life long friendships or even romantic relationships with.” After getting tired of experiencing the same struggles, she decided to take a step back and “change up her circle a little bit” for different results.


Huey actually “recently started dating again” as [he] had a short-lived relationship earlier this year” that didn’t really work out. In his words, there’s no villain to that story, but Trixie adamantly disagrees.


They are passionate about open, transparent communication. We’re all very different people in our likes, preferences, and proclivities, so it stands to reason that our experiences, perspectives, decision making styles, and worldviews would also all be different.


In Huey’s opinion, people “shouldn’t wait until they’re in the midst of a passionate disagreement before they have serious conversations about compromise and their non-negotiables. At this point, it’s too late, especially if emotions are high and everyone involved is on the defensive.


It’s his hope that someone will be listening and hear something on the show that challenges them on a deeper level to find opportunities to engage in these types of dialogues, but in a safe way before there’s a problem in their relationship.

Love Isn’t Enough: Eros, Ludus, Philia, Storge, Pragma, Mania

So, my personal life has been poppin lately – hence the lack of posts.  We back on though and this week we’ll be discussing agape.  Agape is an unselfish love of all mankind that combines Eros + Storge.  In this type of love, individuals are willing to sacrifice anything for their loved one(s).  Agape is based on an unbreakable commitment and an unconditional, altruistic love.

Love Isn’t Enough: Eros, Ludus, Philia, Storge, Pragma

We’ve talked a lot about love in ways that were all very healthy, descriptive, fun, and positive.  However, this is not always the case.  Again, love is challenging.  It’s confusing.  It can also be dark and dangerous.  This week we’re going to discuss mania.

Love Isn’t Enough: Eros, Ludus, Philia, Storge

We’ve been writing about love for quite some time now.  In many ways, being diligent and consistent has really helped me to reevaluate a lot of what I thought I knew about love and its many different expressions.  

This week, we’ll be discussing pragma or mature, practical love.  Pragma is about making compromises to help relationships work over time, as well as showing patience and tolerance.  It’s the kind of love that’s practical, mutually-beneficial, and endures through sickness and in health over the long-haul.  As a special surprise, I’m going to introduce our first guest contributor, M. Divine.

Enjoy! Continue reading “Pragma”

Love Isn’t Enough: Eros, Ludus, Philia

Here’s a quick recap of everything we’ve talked about thus far in the last few weeks.  Love confuses a lot of people because we all mean so many different things when we use the word love.  Eros is all about romantic, sexual desire or lust.  Ludus is the all about the fun and excitement we feel when dating.  Philia is brotherly love that we have for friends and acquaintances.  This week we’re going to talk about storge.

Philia

Love Isn’t EnoughEros, Ludus

So far we’ve talked about both romantic and playful love.  Now, we’re going to talk about philia or brotherly love.  Philia is the deep friendship or comradely bond that develops between coworkers, teammates, or soldiers in an army because of the shared experience that everyone has.  It is the love we feel for people we strive with to achieve a shared goal – like fighting side by side on a battlefield against a common enemy.  Philia is about showing loyalty, sacrificing, and sharing your emotions.
