Quality podcast

I’ve been looking for something like this. Stephen can take something dense and inaccessible and make it understandable. I have a moment of deep insight during almost every podcast. Thanks for making me a better human.

Exceptional Podcast

I wanted to wait ‘till I listened to all episodes before I write this review, but I couldn’t help it. For the past three months I’ve started my morning with listening to Stephen’s voice and this amazing journey in philosophy. I followed Stephen’s advise to listen to these episodes from the beginning and what a wonderful and mesmerizing journey I’ve been engaged into where wisdom reign supreme and knowledge is infinite. Thank you Stephen for creating this masterpiece that one day will be recognized as the most enlightening podcast ever , and thank you for giving us a glimpse of what the great philosophers throughout the centuries have produced and contributed to our understanding of this world. Keep them coming, we are forever in your debt.
