What a great show

Excellent - A show that explores philosophy fully: with an eye for seeing how it is active in the world today. Fans of 'In Our Time' will love this. Look at other ABC stuff too!

Fantastic Podcast!

This is the best philosophy podcast I've come across and one of my favourites regardless of genre. Our host interviews a different thinker each week and does so with great skill and respect. Arguments are presented plainly, clearly, without over-simplification nor with too much jargon. All in all great work; I look forward to this each week. I don't know if this is read by the producers of the show, but if it is: thank you.

Philosopher's Zone

I love this podcast - huge thanks to all involved in producing it. They ask good questions of very interesting people, alternating between looking at the cutting edge of modern ethical questions and the history of philosophy. It's pitched well so that they don't assume much prior knowledge but don't over-simplify. Not always the safest thing to listen to while cycling to work as it can take a little more attention than wise in heavy traffic but would recommend to anyone interested in philosophy and ethics! For one thing it's given me a much greater appreciation of what academics actually do - hearing someone describe just how many versions they had to read in how many languages to get a good interpretation of an ancient chinese text brought home how reliant we can be on the hard work of such folks, where we easily take for granted the distilled version we read that took years of effort. Don't let any academics know I said that, though - they still have an easy life relative to real work!
