A great mix of intellectual weight and delight

I’m a mechanical engineering professor and this podcast makes me wish I studied philosophy, each episode is rich in its own way. I’m amazed at how much intellectualism is dropped in such short conversations! Dr. Cherry has a skill for asking thought-provoking questions that avoid redundancy and really draw upon the expertise of the guests. The ease of conversation and social relevance of the topics makes philosophy less intimidating and much more intriguing. I’m so thankful a friend sent me an episode of this podcast, it has broaden my intellectual horizons tremendously.
