Like taking a college class from a great prof, even better because there’s no homework

This podcast made quarantining, which has become a lifestyle, a whole lot better. Big ideas are made so accessible, so meaningful with the way Stephen connects them to the time-period and shows their significance in the grand scheme of things. A great podcast to listen to for anyone with simply an interest in philosophy, with no background necessary to understand.

Necessary listening

So appreciative of this podcast. Especially now with COVID, this podcast has kept me motivated and curious to learn. It’s been a lifeline in a very dark time. Thanks Stephen for all you do!

Amazing!

So glad i found this podcast!! I studied philosophy years ago and listening to this gave me so many new perspectives about certain philosophers, often quite hilarious. Currently on a binge of ‘philosophize this’!
