Time Well Spent

There is never any filler in these powerful and thoughtful podcasts exploring the enormous issues that confront and often confound us all.

Connecting vital thinkers such as Jung, Maslow, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, and Colin Wilson! The last is a great thinker and author who is way too anonymous for the depth and importance of his writing.

Never talking down to listeners, but approachable and accessible, important ideas are discussed in bite sized chunks. The presentations are a wonderful doorway into these ideas, and they are given context which is invaluable.

Their videos on YouTube and subscribing to the their website are something to consider. A bargain for such high quality content that deserves support given the wasteland of a lot of the web. And it ain’t getting better. But this stuff is outstanding as well as practical. Well done.

So good

Short thought provoking material, I listen to some episodes multiple times and really enjoy the perspective.
