E3 Jack Kerouac: Beyond the Road

Exploring beyond the road with Jack Keroauc

In the last episode we took a look at Neal Cassady, the living embodiment of 'it' in the eyes of Jack Kerouac. Today, we'll move beyond the passion and the frenzy exuded by Cassady in On The Road to explore the path to transcendence that Kerouac found elsewhere. We'll find out how Kerouac progressed from a hunger for pleasure and kicks to meditation, solitude, and an inner tranquillity.

In this episode, we're going to explore whether Kerouac was really on to something here, and whether there are any lessons that we can take from his adventures with Cassady.
