Hi Stephen, I have been an on and off listener for a year now and continue to come back to your podcast when I want to learn more. Your work has been such a great support to develop my own critical thinking and explore philosophical topics as they apply to my life and experience. You should be proud of what you have created as it has touched the lives of people like myself. I can’t wait to continue to use the concepts and thinking introduced by you in my career as a passionate social worker and life-long learner.

There’s something to make you stop and think in every episode. Fascinating stuff. Just one tiny existential critique about Cioran; he was Romanian, and the capital of Romania is Bucharest, so he couldn’t ‘leave Romania to go to Bucharest’ - he was already there!
Exceptionally engaging podcast!!!
Highly erudite, entertaining and humorous at times.
