Some people should not be allowed a day job

The title is referring to Peter Adamson in particular. The only two complaints I have with this podcast is ment only as a praise: I wish the episodes where longer, and that there where more of them.
Peter Adamson does a great job explaining the nooks and crannies of the minds of the great philosophers, and often utilises the giraffe "Hiawatha" to make those difficult and hard-to-grasp concepts tangible and clearer than they would otherwise be.
This podcast has the best mix of phuns, giraffes and philosophy (not necessarily in that order) which I have witnessed, and I warmly recommend it to anyone with a reasonable understanding of English, a love of knowledge (or giraffes) and a sense of humor.
Download and listen to the first two or three episodes, and soon you will be tapping the refresh button much more often in the hope that a new episode has been released.
