My new favourite podcast
I love this podcast & I’m so glad I stumbled upon it, I’ve learnt so much in a few episodes and found them so interesting ❤️
I enjoy the discovery of new ideas and perspectives that Philosophy Bites brings. Such a refreshing alternative to mainstream media and partisanship. I just wish they’d apply some of the theories and concepts to contemporary problems.
Truly brilliant and refreshing
It’s been nice to find a podcast devoted to exploring all that is philosophy. Prominent, well-established guest speakers; inquisitive and critical towards philosophical concepts & ideas; and a great hosts to provide this audible content!
