    #310 - Diogenes

    #310 - Diogenes

    In addition to being the patron saint of cynicism, the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes is basically the patron saint of Drunken Philosophy. He was famous for living in an overturned wine barrel on the streets of Athens and generally thumbing his nose at the educated citizens of that old world metropolis. This week, Connor and Dan investigate Diogenes' whole deal and see if he had anything worth while to say.

    #309 - Liberty, Harm, and a Ride on the Bus

    #309 - Liberty, Harm, and a Ride on the Bus

    This week, Connor and Dan break quarantine in order to venture into the land of make believe. It's thought experiment time! Should people be free to do harmless actions? What if they're really gross? What if I'm just trying to get to work and they're being really gross? These are the pressing questions answered on this week's episode (sort of).

    #308 - Jean Gebser, Structures of Consciousness

    #308 - Jean Gebser, Structures of Consciousness

    Are we approaching end times or just a monumentally shift in the way we understand the world? If you were to ask European poet, philosopher, and student of culture Jean Gebser he would emphatically say it was the latter. This week, Connor and Dan discuss Gebser's various structures of consciousness to see where we've been, where we are, and where we're going.

    #307 - Henri Bergson, Time and Free Will

    #307 - Henri Bergson, Time and Free Will

    This episode is going to require some imagination, some creativity, and some intuition on the part of the listener. Connor and Dan aren't quite sure they understand what Henri Bergson is talking about, but they like the cut of his jib and they like the way he makes them feel. Sometimes that's good enough.

    #306 - Bertrand Russell

    #306 - Bertrand Russell

    The time has come to finally get analytical on this podcast and, in order to do so, Connor and Dan head straight to the source: The father of analytic philosophy, Bertrand Russell. We're talking logic, we're talking math, and we're talking paradoxes. But we're also talking about an anti-war atheist who managed to hang around on this Earth for a century. Pretty neat guy!

my boyfriend found this podcast a little while ago and he listened to it everyday and would talk me about how much he loved it and how funny it is, we now listen to it in the car and we absolutely love it, it’s a constant laugh while talking about really interesting ideas.

Try-hards

This show is for the unintelligent. The guys hosting this show are a couple of shallow, douche bags trying so hard to be interesting. Horrible show.

Seemed like it should be fun

Pointless. Never talk about the philosophy, they are superficial in all respects. Not worth the 40 minutes I spent.
