Life changing podcast
I love philosophy and I love this podcast. It is informative, thought provoking and enlightening. Listening to it is challenging my views of everything and advancing my understanding of what's happening around me - or at least what appears to be happening!
Every time I listen to West his revelations and take on philosophical issues remains very enlightening and critically evaluated. Becker series is very illuminating to me.
Hard to think of a title
I enjoy this.
