the best philo podcast ever

There are no words! Well, I have a few. The narration is smooth and engaging, the content is, in my opinion, modernized enough for the typical 20 year old to understand, and the approach to philosophy (chronological order) helps a TON because it's like a history book of philosophy but in audio format but BETTER. I listen to this on car rides, when I'm writing, when I'm about to sleep. Just learning about who were the early philosphers up to the latest ones were not just an eye opener, but a transformative journey into knowing little about how to live life, to having an abundance of advice from ancient/modern philosophers.

Amazing and Informative!

I've always been interested in philosophy but I really didn't know where to start. I didn't wanna go out and buy books I wasn't sure I would like. This was just what I needed! This podcast is awesome! He talks about everything in a way where it's entertaining, easy to understand, a little funny, and extremely informative. Tbh, the transition songs don't bother me. In fact, they kinda make me chuckle a bit. Anyway, I am loving this podcast! 👏👏👏

Current fave!

So I’ve always wanted to learn about philosophy but I’ve always had a hard time understanding it, or maybe I’ve been reading the wrong articles but I’m so glad I discovered this! It’s so much easier to grasp the ideas & I just love it. It’s educational & entertaining at the same time. Many many thanks! 🙏🏽
