The Philosofa is a podcast that discusses the practical, real-world significance of abstract philosophical problems, balancing a fine-line between wit and wisdom along the way. Each episode the hosts, comedians Omar Hamdi and Helen Arney, introduce the philosophical quandary of the day. They are joined in the studio by an academic philosopher, who offers his or her expertise, and other guests from beyond the academy, who discuss the ways in which the topic is important and applies within their own fields. Relevant, irreverent and cerebral - no philosophy background needed. Download, tune-in and enjoy!
