The Partially Examined Life is a podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it. Each episode, we pick a short text and chat about it with some balance between insight and flippancy. You don't have to know any philosophy, or even to have read the text we're talking about to (mostly) follow and (hopefully) enjoy the discussion. For links to the texts we discuss and other info, check out We also feature episodes from other podcasts by our hosts to round out your partially examined life, including Pretty Much Pop (, covering all media), Nakedly Examined Music (, deconstructing songs), Philosophy vs. Improv (, fun with performance skills and philosophical ideas), and (sub)Text (, looking deeply at lit and film).

    Almost done working my way through all the episodes. Love it, very enjoyable and accessible discussions on a broad survey of philosophical topics. I learned a great deal, as well as providing me thinkers and ideas to explore more on my own. Please, please, keep it up!

  • A podcast that grows on you…

    The discussion on beauty & senses, too shallow to intrigue but a good scratch. Beauty & love are extractions of mind, impacting all manners of health & existence, making AGI hard to achieve 🍭
