I would give 6 stars if I could !

The best podcast I’ve ever listened to! Insightful, engaging and funny! I would definitely recommend it to everyone who enjoys acquiring new knowledge and thinks about life. Stephen, you are great! Thank you very much for what you are doing! :) :) :)

If you are open to learn new tgings listen to this!

I love the down to earth and also funny way philosophy is explained. I would never consider myself to be someone that would sit through hours and hours of philosophy info. It makes me think, chuckle and I admire the enthusiasm and passion that Mr. West brings to this podcast. I am currently at episode 60 starting with episode 1.
I have already recommended this to people who are generally open to learn something new.

THANK YOU!

P.s.: you can really hear how the speaker has grown by the change of voice.

Stephen West can take the most complex concepts of philosophy and make them digestible and fun. Definitely one of the best podcast I have listened to. Give it a try if you want to know more today than you did yesterday!
