Great French podcast ,

Interesting

A good bit of 'philosophy-lite'. Really interesting to hear the views on life of well-known figures, and to hear about their life in general. A lot of the reasons people give about what differentiates us from animals are rubbish, often contradicted by another interviewee anyway, but that doesn't matter so much I think - still interesting.
