One of my favorites

Listening to this podcast is like having a relaxing, intellectual discussion with friends over coffee and getting my mind blown. Elliot keeps it chill and fun while the dynamic duo tackles complex, challenging, and often controversial subjects. Peter has great insights and excels at explaining ideas and vocabulary in a way anyone could understand while still keeping it relevant and nuanced. If you want to learn something new and have your ideas challenged (in a constructive, non combative environment), then give this a listen.
