What Is Love?
Hosted by Sasha Sugar. What Is Love? is more than a talk-show, it is an honest reflection of Sasha Sugar’s quest for love and search for god. This show will make you feel vulnerable and it will free you from your comfort zone; it will also challenge your preconceived notions of love, divine, and life. What Is Love? eliminates the boundary between a radio-show as a medium and a real life conversation. It is an authentic dialogue between Sasha and her amazing guests from different walks of life – spiritual healers, relationship experts, divine vessels, small business owners, practitioners of alternative lifestyles, inspirational gurus and other conscious beings. If you would like to share your life story and engage with Sasha in a love- and truth-manifesting conversation, send an email at whatislove@radiofreebrooklyn.org. It is a live show so the audience can call in during the show (718-928-9732) to ask Sasha and her guests about anything love/god related.
