Hi-Phi Nation is the first story-driven, narrative podcast on contemporary philosophy. Every week we begin with compelling stories of ordinary and extraordinary human experiences, and transform them into an examination of philosophical ideas. We profile stories from war, crime, politics, religion, public health and policy, science, and history that raise philosophical questions, and we answer them with the help of contemporary academic philosophers. The aim of the show is to bring fans of the best narrative, story-driven podcasts into philosophy. The show is completely independently produced by Barry Lam, Professor at Vassar College.

I listen to many different podcasts. Including the moth, this American life, love and radio, criminal etc. this has become a new favorite of mine. Please come out with some new episodes quick as I've blown through these within a day or two. Do keep up the interesting topics and influential philosophical views. Very educational, It's a must listen!!
Bringing philosophy to life
Bringing the Philosophy of Modern World to Life
Barry Lam is the Malcolm Gladwell of philosophy podcasters. His podcasts bring the world of academic philosophy to a diverse range of topics from military ethics to pop music mashup. Lam's style is laid back, but he has a flare for engaging story telling. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who listens and enjoys the Hidden Brain or History Revisited podcasts. I look forward to a second season next year.
