Let it

One of my top favorite podcasts

Andrew from New Hampshire ,

Accessible and thorough with a healthy dose of dry humor

Despite having a philosophy degree already, I never knew how critical giraffes were to philosophical inquiry. Nor did I realize how many philosophical problems could be illustrated with silent film criticism. Thank you for all that you do!

In-depth but accessible and interesting

Peter does a great job of bringing together many different strands of philosophy and making it into an interesting story.
