Join the search for meaning and truth. Presented by Dennis Arjo.

What is the meaning of life? What is our place in this crazy world of ours? And how can we reconcile our restless nature with our longing for stability?

Legendary Beat Generation author Jack Kerouac attempted to answer these questions, trying everything from climbing the Matterhorn Peak in California to studying different religions and their effect on his psyche. Uncover his experiences from the sorrowful to the sublime with Dennis Arjo, Professor of Religion & Philosophy, as he unpacks each remarkable event in Kerouac’s “The Dharma Bums.”
