The Hardcore History of philosophy

Well done. Very down the middle “just the facts, ma’am” but with style. Smooth like a 18 yo scotch. Would love to have a beer with this guy. Again, very impressive at how he keeps his personal views mostly out of the shower of information and ideas. Well done Sir.

Absolutely brilliant

This is not just the best podcast on philosophy, but one of the best podcasts. I feel my brain is being fed delicious morsels of food in every paragraph. I’m amazed at Stephen West’s consummate skill in distilling a morass of complex thought into digestible, provocative podcasts. May SW prosper and flourish. Stay safe, Stephen.
