Taking the Red Pill on Philosophy
What is Philosophy? The answer depends on who you ask. For some people, philosophy is a waste of time where you ask questions that get you nowhere. For others, it's simply a way of knowing how to live a happier, fulfilled life. In this episode, I'm joined by Gwendolyn Dolske. Gwen teaches philosophy at Cal State Polytechnic University in Pomona. A few of her courses include the Philosophy of Sex and Love, Moral Theory and Existentialism.

Amy Dong: The Joys of Growing Up
Different people may give you different answers if you were to ask them how they feel about Growing Up. For me, the past 8 years have been quite the journey, growing up through high school and university. To expand on this, I was joined by Amy Dong, a twenty-two year old Fulbright Scholar and author whose writing career took off in 2014 when a personal essay she wrote received national acclaim from The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. After a series of other accolades, she spent time working as a magazine editor, curriculum designer, and freelance writer during her studies at New York University (NYU). Key discussion points:
