Best Podcast on Philosophy by Far

This is a podcast that is worth listening to from start to finish. I started at episode one and have learned so much within the first 25 episodes, it has changed the way I look at life and especially politics. Once I have listened to this podcast in full, I may have to go back and listen to them all again.

This is my favorite podcast of 2018/2019.

Stephen West is increadibly good at what he does in this podcast, which is laying out the contributions of each philosopher in an interesting way which keeps a listener waiting for each next word.

He mentions that the first ~100 episodes are rough and might be hard to listen to, but I did not find this to be an issue. As stated, I am only 25 episodes in, but they have all been highly enjoyable to which to listen.

I am really enjoying the podcast. Entertaining and enlightening. You recommend listening at 1 1/2 speed because he moves a little slow. He also struggles with be intellectually honest (and oddly enough, philosophically honest) about ideas he clearly views as, lesser. IE; spirituality and pre-modern gender roles. So, take what he offers as purely entertainment.
