Daniel Lobell of Comical Radio and This American Life is back once again. This time, he's diving head first into philosophy (a subject he knows little about) with fellow comedians (Marc Maron, Artie Lange, Maria Bamford, Lewis Black, Greg Fitzsimmons, Larry Miller, Reggie Watts etc.) and attempting to find the answers to life's great questions. Even if the questions just lead to more questions, there will be many laughs in between. You can listen and decide: Are comedians really "modern day philosophers"?

Very entertaining

I was looking for a podcast that would entertain me at work. I work alone most of the time so it can become pretty boring. I came across this podcast and I love it! I love the deep conversations and the imagination of comedians to make me laugh at the same time. I also like how it’s long episode cause when your at work long episode make a short day! Wonderful job!
P.S Congrats on the baby
