Husband and Wife recap the Book of Solomon's Song of Songs (Song of Solomon) —
And we learn an interesting interpretation that places this story in an all new light! We think it's an operatic love triangle that was likely performed on stage before a live audience, and the text ended up in Solomon's library. The Jewish and Christian traditions can keep their childish allegories. The Kabbalists can keep their silly mysticism. And the Mormons can ... well ... keep on omitting this book entirely (Husband kind of messed this up in the podcast). This story deserves to sit right next to other great love triangles of the ages: Twilight, Casablanca, The Great Gatsby, Wuthering Heights, and Beverly Hills 90210.
