Therapeutic

These two ask and attempt to answer questions that we all ask ourselves at some point or another. Whether it’s life’s purpose, your ultimate concern, or catphishing, I always get something good out of the show. My worldview has shifted in such a positive way since starting the podcast. I appreciate you guys!

Entertaining Education

I get a lot out of listening to Peter and Elliot talk about philosophy. The podcast has certainly opened up my interest in philosophy. I have learned about topics that are difficult to comprehend and digest on my own. Insightful Peter and casual Elliot make a great, complete duo. Thank you guys for producing some awesome podcasts!

Really interesting discussions with people who can form full sentences and hide their depression well.
