Amazing!

What a gift to listen to discussions of classic works by eminent scholars of philosophy!

Learning so much about Ancient Greek Philosophy

Melvyn is great. I like when he gets to the point - we only have 40 or so minutes for each episode. The guests tend to drawl on.

Rude

I believe it is Bragg who is moderating the discussion on Plato’s Republic, and I am just shocked by how incredibly rude, arrogant, and interrupting he is. Unbelievable! I swear I would leave the discussion mid-way. As one woman is talking he cuts in “yes yes we have to get to the cave”, rushing her along.

Are you kidding me? How can people stand this ill-mannered, rude simpleton? He does a great disservice to the grand topics this podcast broaches by treating it as just some business he has to rush through. Shame!
