  • Love the content and style, but . . .

    I get a little tired of him picking on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I just commenced listening to the podcast. I’ve listened to six or seven episodes and he’s already mocked adherents to that church three or four times.

  • The simplest yet most accessible and even entertaining philosphy podcast

    Simply put, my favorite podcast. I’ve tried other good ones, then always end up coming back to this one. It has been useful for my life, for revisiting philosophers I studied long ago, and know different ones with an accesible language and explanations. If the episode captures my attention then I start reading the actual books.
