Terrific

Easy to listen to and informed discussions. I have found the content very informative in a way that is rare in the media today.
I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone who is interested in modern philosophy.

Helpful and informative

Thanks for the great podcast. Each interview is hugely informative and challenging and each person interviewed is well qualified in their field.

Excellent shows

Intelligent conversations with fascinating guests.

My only quibble is that the files are on average twice as large as other shows with similar length episodes.

Keep going!
