  • A decent introduction to various philosophical topics and philosophers

    I love how the host selects guests to present a balanced view on the subject. One critical issue however is the censorship placed on critique of religion. A significant number of early modern Western philosophers (French enlightenment philosophers, German philosophers such as Nietzsche and Marx etc) are deists or atheists and that side of them is often unmentioned or suppressed.

  • As per usual, little Melvin gets in the way of his brilliant guests, belittling their words as if he is the expert. His rudeness and arrogance in the face of his mind boggling ignorance ruins the flow and the ambiance. He is the worst host on the BBC and yet they refuse to replace him. Just invite the guests, give them an outline and a timeline and let them speak Or invite a 4th guest, another expert to be host for that program. Please show Melvin the door.
