Socrates is believed to have said: “The unexamined life is not worth living”. And we agree. But this life, once examined, reveals a tempest of ideas and imaginings. This life is strange, and this podcast is an exploration of this strangeness. We invite you to come with us as we explore things settled, which on closer examination turn out to be not so settled. G.

Great podcast that explains the big questions in a short digestible way. Definitely recommend!
Excellent and to the point
Reminds me very much of why I began to love philosophy years ago. Instant subscribe.
Relevant and engaging. Taps into something everyone thinks but rarely puts into words. This is a fantastic podcast! I can’t wait for the next episode.
