Thank you Stephen!

For the past few years this podcast has been my everything. I could not say I would be the same person without it. Thank you so much for this thought-provoking and enlightening production!

Recommendations

Pure gold for someone wanting to learn about the history of philosophy or memorizing the key thinkers and ideas and how they are connected. Approachable but not too simple. Stephen seems to have a clear sense about the best possible angles from which to approach each subject to make it interesting for anyone wanting to gain deeper understanding about the western culture from 2020.

Excellent podcast that deals with philosophy approach-ably

Very interesting podcast that looks into different aspects of all things pertaining to philosophy, life and everything.

One of my favs. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to understand history, politics, human psyche, and general philosophical questions.
