This week we cover the Enchiridion 26-28. We are told to try to understand the will of Nature, to practice recognizing things that happen to others, and to understand they will happen to us as well.

An intellectual gift every Sunday
Steve’s Sunday Stoic is possibly the most approachable Podcast on the subject of Stoicism. His unassuming charm and relatable content give context as to its application in every day life.
I find myself becoming excited each Saturday in the knowledge I’ll soon be enjoying another episode.
Keep up the amazing work Steve.
Stoic Steve, the legend
I rate the “hustle” of Steve. Spreading positive thoughts through Stoicism. The way he applies stoicism to his life is a prime example of how it works; despite being a teacher, a father, he still manages to put this podcast together for us. Means a lot mate, thank you!
Stoicism for today
I’ve been reading books on Stoicism and listening to various podcasts for around a year. I find the commentary on readings from Marcus Aurelius, Seneca etc on this podcast very relatable and useful. Hope it keeps going.
