Those approaching Stoicism for the first time, with the intention of adopting it as a life philosophy, can find it both impossibly dense and extreme in its expectations of its students. For this reason, it is important that there exist a practical interpretation of the high-minded values of this ancient philosophy - to make the understanding and adoption of the basic tenets of Stoicism easier for those just starting out. This podcast helps newcomers get acquainted and comfortable with the practical aspects of Stoicism - it is a stepping stone to those heavier and denser parts of the philosophy that we all, if we truly wish to commit ourselves to practicing the philosophy of Stoicism, must delve into eventually. Episodes publish weekly.

What Tanner provides is exactly what I need right now.

I fell upon Stoicism in 2019, but only as far understanding that it teaches acceptance and how to ‘deal with things’. Since then I never gave it much thought. But a month ago I was told that my time on this planet now has a very predictable timeframe. The last two weeks have been tough - and during a very recent episode of insomnia I fell across Practical Stoicism and I am so glad that I did.

Tanner gives just enough of an explanation into a meditation to help you understand more about what about what it means, but more importantly it whets the appetite and leaves you yearning for more. For this I thank you Tanner :) Nizan Horsefield

Exactly what I needed

I am a 38 year old woman & I had a very difficult childhood and while I try not to hold on to resentment & try to take ownership for my life now, I had very little guidance by way of living in a manner that serves myself & the people around me well. I find it difficult to regulate & get a handle on my emotions sometimes. In social situations, particularly if I’m feeling uncomfortable, I’m realizing how inauthentic I can be. The past year has been one of the most challenging for me. On paper, it’s actually been a ‘good’ year, but my internal world has felt fraught & choatic. Tanner, I want to speak to you directly here… thank you. Your podcast has been helping me a lot. I liken my experience to giving up a bad coffee habit. When you decide to quit, it is incredibly difficult. It’s painful & exhausting while you withdraw. You drink herbal tea instead because you know it’s better for you even though it might not feel quite as exciting or as glamorous as coffee. It’s not always fun, but one day you wake up & feel something akin to peace. You’re no longer on the roller coaster & your energy has started to become stable. Your podcast, & I suppose stoicism as a philosophy, is like my herbal tea. It has helped me stay calm while I continue to steer myself in a better direction. The episodes are delivered in a soothing tone & it’s easy to consume for beginners like me. I don’t feel completely out of my depth here. So thank you again. I would recommend to anybody wanting to improve themselves. I will undoubtedly ‘drink coffee’ again, but I will do my very best to choose tea most of the time moving forward 🫖
