Best philosophy podcast!

One of the greatest podcasts ever. The extent of the topics covered is unbelievable. Absolutely the best philosophy podcast.

Thanks!

I absolutely love this podcast. It’s an invaluable resource for those of us who are fascinated by philosophy but don’t have a lot of time. I would recommend it to anyone of petty much any age! Free public access to knowledge is probably the greatest achievement of the 21st century, and this podcast proves it! Thanks, Peter and team!

Wow!

This is one impressive show. Like all the great narrative, "mass market" podcasts, it's accessible, but the the breadth and depth of detail is simple astounding. I listen to a lot of similar shows on all different histories, and this is my favorite. While the subject matter may seem less interesting to many, but I would bet that most people that like a good narrative history of England or Rome or whaatever would enjoy this just as much, if not more. The show is just so approachable and gives you so much information that's so easy to digest, it really is a treat. Instead of rich white men fighting to see who is the biggest jerk, you get to hear about (mostly) rich white men arguing about who's the smartest.
