Relevant knowledge, stories and modern day metaphors

With an interest to learn more, over the years I’ve picked up (and failed to read through) many books on philosophy, philosophers- the tic, chronological. This podcast contains all the information, storytelling and modern day metaphors necessary to enable true understanding of concepts! Wish I was more into podcasts back in 2013.

Incredible Work

I don’t know Stephen, but I have huge respect for him. For how he has dedicated so much time to putting together one of the most educational and thought provoking podcasts out there. And I’ve heard a lot of them! I started listening over 3 years ago and for someone with no understanding of the history of thought prior to that thanks to a catholic schooling, I know feel I understand the world a lot more and the context of where we are in relation to history. No more than ever we need this podcast and I hope many more discover it . keep up the great work
