This is an interdisciplinary podcast which uses a philosophical lens to explore any topic: death, time, consciousness, desire, sex and gender, perception, language, truth, art and beauty, love, friendship, happiness or technology. We will critically decipher philosophical jargon and ideas to help our listeners grasp various contributions to the greatest, or the most seemingly trivial, questions of humankind.

Entertaining and insightful

Proust is a powerhouse of information and put each subject into an historic perspective. The subjects are compelling and the presentation is entertaining. It leaves me wanting more.
