Wow!

A university professor who can actually communicate! The host’s overview of philosophy is easily the best on offer: it is knowledgeable and impeccably researched. You can’t do better for an introduction to most any topic in philosophy.

Audio quality poor

The echo, where this is recorded, something needs to change because I have to turn it off. It is so echoey. We’ve come a long way of late, buy better microphones record in an enclosed space. Check the quality of your audio before you start recording the whole show.
