Excellent philosophy podcast

Probably the best philosophy podcast around. Top rate philosophers. Great discussion.

A wonderful series of personal interviews

Kieran Setiya is a marvelous interviewer. We learn a lot about prominent philosophers that we couldn’t learn elsewhere, much of it philosophical, some of it not so much but still extremely interesting. Setiya is very respectful of his interviewees, keen on probing them when appropriate. He knows how to listen but also how to make them talk. Can’t get enough of it.
