The Partially Examined Life is a philosophy podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it. Each episode, we pick a short text and chat about it with some balance between insight and flippancy. You don't have to know any philosophy, or even to have read the text we're talking about to (mostly) follow and (hopefully) enjoy the discussion. For links to the texts we discuss and other info, check out www.partiallyexaminedlife.com.

We also feature episodes from other podcasts by our hosts to round out your partially examined life, including Pretty Much Pop (prettymuchpop.com, covering all media), Nakedly Examined Music (nakedlyexaminedmusic.com, deconstructing songs), and (sub)Text (lit, film, psychoanalysis). Learn about more network podcasts at partiallyexaminedlife.com.

Classic Till this Day

This was and still is a mammoth in the Philosophy podcast canon. It's in a banter/repartee forum style of 4 ex-academics (masters). Reading list and sometimes a guest.

Don’t stop doing this

To everyone reading this: if you do listen to them, please leave them a review. It’s criminal that this has no ratings.

Why hasn’t anyone rated PEL on iTunes?

I don’t understand, guys. Why is the podcast left unrated? It deserves 5 stars!
