I listened to Steve 3 years ago and bought Square One. As someone studying mathematics in university, it was my introduction to seriously trying to think about metaphysics, ontology, and epistemology seriously.
My hope is that Steve moves on as I did, finds hylomorphism, and becomes Catholic thanks to the most robust metaphysical-ontological worldview I have found - Thomism.
That aside, some pretty solid interviews. I see some hate for your ‘narrow’ interview style, but you push back on people who don’t seem to be coherent, and they often don’t reply with skill (at least anything other than rhetorical skill), which they should if they’ve seriously thought about objections to their view.
P.S. - Would rate 6/5 stars if I could for making Graham Priest look like a fool.

Like nothing else!

Loved the episodes on race. They are the smartest, most articulate and respectful conversation I have found on the subject that get to the root of the problem and how to approach it. Looking forward to listening to all the others!

Please Come Back

This was one of my favorite podcasts. I haven’t heard from it since a 7hour marathon in September. I hope you’re alright, Steve.
