Very optimally summarised version of philosophy
Stephen with his excellent communication and witty style delivers, what in my opinion is the most accurately summarised version of each philosopher.
Things which he leaves out in the podcast about any philosopher is overshadowed by the important ideas and details he chooses to present about the same philosopher. Perfect balance!!
Stephen is a great teacher, imparting immense wisdom in a simple to understand manner. Enjoyed every episode.
Just started and I love it
Stephen is really easy to listen to. He puts it in terms that a layperson can understand and also has some type of humor going. Helps with contemplating the things that going on around us daily.
