David Edmonds does it again!
David Edmonds hasn't strayed too far from his proven winning formula, tried and tested by the equally brilliant "Philosophy Bites" podcast. Edmonds presents us with an intellectual but digestible philosophical outlook on every day life. Perfect for those looking to think critically about the world around them. It's a great podcast that demonstrates the practical applications of the philosophy in words of one syllable, the subject that too many dismiss out of hand as being abstract and complex.
Fascinating doses of enlightenment
Simply fascinating and comprehensible.
