Excellent

It is one thing to read philosophy but it is another to understand it and Steven makes it easy for his listeners to understand even deeply abstract and intellectually puzzling philosophical ideas.
Would recommend this podcast to everyone!

Four stars for a reason

I would’ve given this five stars, but he kept apologizing for talking about Christianity, as if it were something worth apologizing for as if acknowledging the role it played in Western civilization. Sad.
