Magical Phippsy ,

It was so much better when they had strippers jumping out of imaginary cakes.

I'm not sure of this podcast. Youth can bring too much arrogance, even more so with something as deep and broad as philosophy. Steven projects an elitism that he hasn't earned and Kevin is too opinionated. The podcast lacks real open mindedness and pragmatism. No one can gain a better sense of the world without seeing the wrong in it so not listening to this podcast could actually hurt one's personal growth but it'd be great to see Steven and Kevin grow. What the heck happened to Matt? Matt balanced things and without him as a third host/regular some of the episodes bring great pain.

Get with it guys! Where did the fun go? Where did the balance go? You need more ladies on the show! Talk about things that are more fun too; like..................oh, I don't know...................stuff like conspiracy theorys, sexuality, money, the pros and cons of both political parties.

Weak

They thought Aristotle came 500 years before Plato and it PRETTY MUCH turned me off of the entire thing. Go listen to "Philosopher's Zone" or "Philosophy Now".

BF is AWESOME

Just recently got into philosophy and found this great podcast. They go off topic a lot but thats what makes the show interesting. I would highly advise anyone who wants to learn a lot of interesting stuff to subscribe to it right now.
