Socrates is believed to have said: “The unexamined life is not worth living”. And we agree.

But this life, once examined, reveals a tempest of ideas and imaginings. This life is strange, and this podcast is an exploration of this strangeness.

We invite you to come with us as we explore things settled, which on closer examination turn out to be not so settled.

G. K. Chesterton said: “...the function of imagination is not to make strange things settled, so much as to make settled things strange; not so much to make wonders facts as to make facts wonders.”

With humor (we hope), and in humility, we hope you will come with us as we explore... A Strange Fire.
