    Alex and Greg are incredibly knowledgeable, and they bring on exceptional guests to discuss the authors, works, and themes. David asks questions that are a great help with works I haven’t been familiar with, and he adds a lot of levity to the sometimes heady conversations. more

  • Send pics?

    Awesome show! Very knowledgable about political philosophy, entertaining, too. They keep asking their listeners to send pics, but I don’t have a girlfriend, let alone a wife. But if I did, I’d send many pics ASAP. You should, too!
