Great show!

Excellent show! Accessible without over-simplifying the complexity of some of the thinkers, frameworks and ideas that have had, will have and might have profound influence on our lives now and in the future. As a professor in sport science and social theory, this is a great teaching tool and inspiration.

Well done

Really interesting podcast

Sincere, silly, relevant

Stephen makes philosophy relevant by boiling complicated stuff down, wrapping it in clear examples, or just explaining it really well. That’s it. Just a human talking about what they’ve read and gotten out from it, with quotes and comparisons and essential quirks. A little bit of history and context, but not a lot of random stuff. Straight to the point. Here’s my review. Thanks for the good work you’re doing. HEARTS <3
