Best Philosophy Podcast

Stephen West is arguably the best philosophy podcast available. The podcast is a description of different famous historical philosophers’ ideologies in a comprehensive and non-patronizing way. Philosophy beginners can understand it, and philosophy experts can respect it.

Rekindling my love for Philosophy

Stephen West is the best philosophy professor you never had. I would pay to sit in a class that he leads!
West writes clearly and effectively lays out philosophy principles and concepts that any citizen open to discourse would understand and even enjoy.
I love the walk through history but also the more recent application of philosophy hypotheticals to the concepts we face today.
