I’ve been listening to this show for about half a year and really enjoying it. Each show gives a basic overview of each philosophers and their historical contexts, which is grateful for someone completely new to philosophy, and is not familiar with western history.
The host’s passion for philosophy shines through every episode, it’s easily imaginable that he’s a friendly and enthusiastic person. I’m really happy to have come across this show!
the basics of philosophy are all there
I highly recommend this podcast. First it covers a wide range of philosophers and philosophical ideas which is great for a non expert like me. Then the host is pretty good and manages to keep it entertaining are well as though-provoking. Lastly for a "home made podcast" the audio quality is good.
Unfortunately the podcaster doesn’t release episodes on a regular basis anymore.
