Amazing Series

One of the first podcast series I listened to thoroughly, this gem of a podcast offers succinct and nuanced insights into the basic tenets of Indian philosophy, a whirlwind but collected tour of one of the richest intellectual traditions of the ancient world. It actually spurred my interest in broader philosophy, being a gateway. It balances humor with profundity, interspersed with lucid interviews that help tie up loose ends. Perhaps overly optimistic in its (too few) several dozen episodes, each rarely a half hour long, it can be at times difficult to process some of the more difficult ideas. Giving it a second go after better familiarizing myself with the field, I am finding all the same old joys and so many new ones. Truly a brilliant contribution to the publicizing of a criminally underappreciated field.

A great narrative history.

A great narrative history that has just as much competition and twists and turns as any political history (History of Rome, History of England, etc.), but it's a competition of the mind and ethics. Plus, for us westerners, it's refreshing to hear about a lineage of thought outside the greco-roman tradition.

Highly Recommended

This combines multi-disciplinary inquiry with approachable presentation.

One ends up seeing once again how much more there is to Africa.
