If you enjoy listening to middle aged men discuss porn and porn-adjacent topics (sometimes related to ethics and social psychology), then this is the podcast for you.

For building new neural pathways in your brain

I started listening to VBW podcast the first time Sam Harris was on, and I became an instant fan. I’ve listened to all episodes since, and watched many of the movies suggested during episode discussions.
I graduated with an engineering degree from the US, and live in the Middle East. During my undergrad studies I was able to enroll in philosophy classes and was an active member of the philosophy club at the university.
Now that I’m back home, and back to reality, the podcast provides me with a window to what it used to be like in my college days.. every episode takes me back to where I left off in philosophy club. So thanks guys for giving me a seat at your table.

My Two Faves

I’ve been listening to Tamler and Dave for years now, and after listening to the gratitude segment today, I decided to submit a review. These guys are delightful. I’m a lawyer, know nothing of philosophy or psychology, but love every minute of their podcast. It’s smart, fun, and accessible, and my commute wouldn’t be the same without it. Thank you both, and for those of you considering it, give it a listen!
