Wit Without Wisdom, Ep. 22
Valentine’s Day is a lot like Hogwarts’s Room of Requirements. “If you have to ask, you’ll never know. If you know, you need only ask.” No idea what that actually means but it seemed fitting for an episode that traverses the confusing requirement of romance’s special day.
Unfortunately, neither of your Wit Without Wisdom hosts are singing praises to the traditional day of love and romantic gestures. But just because we’re a little cynical doesn’t mean we can’t provide some excellent information about the day or deliver some insights on ways to make it exciting and “fun.”
In this episode, we’re going to give you everything you need to know to be an expert celebrator or some viable arguments to aid your avoidance of the entire thing.
The true costs of lover’s day
Interesting traditions from around the globe
How to use your porch light to opt-out
How romance became an environmental hazard in Europe
Plus, if after the show you’re still on aboard with celebrating, we’ll share the best gifts for your intended based on their inner nature. So, why wait? Pull up that big box of chocolate you’ll be carrying in on the 14thand join us for a very romantic Valentine’s Day special.

We’re S.K. Anthony and Raymond Esposito, your hosts at Writers After Dark. She writes those urban-fantasy–superhero-badass-chicks-with-a-touch-of-romance stories and he writes those dark fiction-things-that-go-bump-in-the night tales.
When it comes to writing, we don’t agree on genre, but we do agree that . . . we love stories . . . and one of the things we love most: hanging out in our mostly-sober, Writers After Dark studio and debating the merits of just about anything related to the story of life.
