  • Yes yet another Philosophy podcast!

    I didn’t think I needed more than Very Bad Wizards or Partially Examined Life or even Sean Carroll, but Eric and Taylor manage to turn over fresh soil, and where I don’t always agree with Eric, his sense of humor softens me up for conclusions that go against the grain of my intuitions. Kind of the way I feel about Wes on PEL, intellectually, cuz Wes isn’t funny. Also their theme music slaps.

  • Excellent for everyone interested in philosophy

    Really happy that they make philosophy accessible to all levels of experience without watering it down. They refer to philosophers and questions that we study in departments of philosophy but explained well enough that anyone can follow along
