Daniel Lobell of Comical Radio and This American Life is back once again. This time, he's diving head first into philosophy (a subject he knows little about) with fellow comedians (Marc Maron, Artie Lange, Maria Bamford, Lewis Black, Greg Fitzsimmons, Larry Miller, Reggie Watts etc.) and attempting to find the answers to life's great questions. Even if the questions just lead to more questions, there will be many laughs in between. You can listen and decide: Are comedians really "modern day philosophers"?

Bentham episode

I am leaving a review so you make more episodes! I am teaching ethics and came across this one during the week I am teaching utilitarianism. So fun to listen to you guys talk and analyze the quotes. I will be telling my class about this podcast this week. :)

danny lobell

he's very very funny when he riffs off his guests.... very very fast and clever. thank you for the lols. he has grown so much since the beginning and it’s wonderful to watch (listen) to. it seems that since he got married and now that he is going to be a father, he jumped to the next level of maturity. he’s so concerned about whether he will “make it” — i believe he already has. not everyone rises to the level of chris rock — and we need people who deal with those of us on a different level. and i believe danny is the person to do that —and he HAS made it. can’t wait to hear the stories of the new baby.
thank you, danny, for all you reveal and all you share.... and the way you draw out your guests. you’ve got quite a gift 🌈

Danny is great. There are great and less-than-great guests, but Danny Lobell is always great, episode after episode.
