Lesser traveled thought

A good pod for thought about ideas that are not regularly traversed in philosophical podcasts: connections of technology, spirit and creativity. I enjoy, appreciate, and regularly listen to the discussions. I do wish guests would buy better microphones!

candy bling ,

Narrow scope

Lack of varying perspectives.

Original Hursh ,

Great podcast

Really enjoy this podcast. A sense of openness. Highly recommended.
