His other books - also written with John Eidinow - include Bobby Fischer Goes to War (on the notorious chess match between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky) and Rousseau's Dog , which dissects the famous quarrel between David Hume and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. His day job is making radio documentaries for the BBC.

He is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the Open University.

Fantastic Phil of Time Interviews!
I listened to the interviews with Mellor on Time and Price on Backward Causation. I had tried hard to understand these issues when a Philosophy student at Cambridge (where both Mellor and Price were!) but I only understood what was going on after hearing the interviews!
Content is excellent. Would really like to see addition to the individual pods e.g. Philosophy of science, ethics, existentialism etc so the pods can be followed as courses. Each pod can belong to more than one thread.
Excellent App, excellent philosophy
This is a really good App - reliable and intuitive. Also an excellent podcast. Fascinating topics discussed with top-drawer philosophers.
