Bookonaut ,

Worth it.

Initially, listening to the podcast with Simon on his own, I found his...earnestness a little irritating, but he grows on you and his interviewing and selection of guests has been top notch.

Thought Stoicism was about being above petty politics.

This guy’s of the left, and he isn’t shy about it. I don’t care about politics. I want to learn about stoicism as a source of self betterment. Not for the sake of being part of a social movement.

Great resource for personal improvement
