Amazing for people new to philosophy

I’m a 16 year old kid who has never looked at anything relating to philosophy before but this podcast exposed me to this new way of looking at life in such an interesting way and I’m absolutely hooked I use it as pure entertainment as opposed to a lecture and I’m enjoying every episode

Something to look forward to

This podcast is something to look forward to each day in a period of "history" when we cannot go anywhere, its a brilliant resource for anyone who is interested in culture, visual culture, art, history, philosphy or just wants to understand why we see the world the way we do.

Steve West our messiah?

Jokes, but seriously I look forward to bingeing episodes each day. A serious highlight to my days now. Started them with the hope they would help me make a decision on what career to choose when I finish them all. Now I realise they’re no help at all. Which is all the help I’ve needed.
