This summer, KUT is revisiting episodes of the podcast "Higher Ed." This episode was originally posted on February 8, 2015.

Each week, KUT's Jennifer Stayton talks with Dr. Ed Burger, President of Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, about higher education, lifelong learning, and exercising the brain.  Feeling like a little summer lovin' as the summer heats up? This week, Ed and Jennifer talk about sparking and sustaining a love of learning.

Ed and Jennifer discuss how we've lost that lovin' feeling in learning, and how we can get it back. Listen on to hear whether they harmonize about what a love of learning can bring to our lives.
