Think back to your early days of school - nursery school and kindergarten, even into first grade. Learning was full of fun and creative discovery. But as time goes by, that fun disappears from the scene, and so can our love of learning.

In this Valentine's episode of KUT's podcast Higher Ed, Jennifer Stayton and Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger 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.

This week, Ed and Jennifer do their best to bust the myth that learning is boring. Also, check out the slightly PG-rated Valentine-themed math puzzler. They'll also inventory what's in Ed's refrigerator. What does this have to do with a love of learning? Listen to find out!
