Thought provoking

This podcast is thoughtful, deep, interesting, insightful, and often funny. If you like discussions involving deep, thorny issues and the random dirty joke (and lots of f bombs) then this podcast is for you.

Like having two cool, smart friends to hang out with

VBW usually has two segments: a humorous opener focused on a recent publication and a full-length segment that attempts to do a deep dive into a work of philosophy, literature, or film. Dave and Tamler have a great rapport and always argue respectfully, even when they disagree. Occasionally, you hear a dog barking in the background. Good stuff.
