Customer Reviews

Fantastic Program - An absolute MUST!

This is easily one of the best and most intelligent radio programs I’ve come across – it is absolutely addictive. I often need to listen to it a few times to “get” everything because it is a show that looks at the really big questions – life, the universe, and everything! It makes philosophy directly applicable to my world – so while I wouldn’t call it easy listening (though the show is presented in a very clear and intelligent fashion with good technical production) it is certainly very rewarding listening.

I love this programme

I enjoy listening to this programme on the radio but I always manage to miss it. (I love podcasts!!) It's always very interesting, with varied topics centred around philosophy, but you don't have to have a huge interest in philosophy to enjoy it - just an enquiring mind. Alan Saunders has a wonderfully smooth voice I could listen to all day - I have to admit I'd happily listen to him reading out the phone book! ;o)


Insightful, accessible, intelligent, cogent and entertaining. Brilliant!
