    I’m so glad I didn’t pick up this show in 2015 when it was recommended to me. If I had, I wouldn’t now be able to enjoy the older episodes back to back. Really good job.

  • Awesome podcast, questionable hosts

    Been listening for years. Love you guys! I think panpsychism is a metaphysical and not semantic thing though. Not the first thing I’ve disagreed with and I’m sure it won’t be the last
