I can't recommend this podcast enough to those curious about Stoic philosophy. I came across the Good Fortune podcast quite by accident almost 2 years ago when I going through a rough patch, and I credit it for laying the foundation which would eventually lead to a greater interest in this way of life. Mr. Van Natta's brief narratives are simple, yet incredibly and subtly powerful. It's not uncommon for me to replay these episodes in my car on my way to work or in the evening before headed to bed, especially when I need the reminder that "misfortune born nobly IS good fortune". Later!
Amazing Stoic Guide
I've been reading stoicism for two years now. This podcast is the first place I point anyone interested in learning about how to adopt stoicism in their daily lives.
I find myself continuously re-listening to the whole set.
My only wish would be for them to come out more often.
Practical Guide to the Good Life
I found these found podcasts to be dealing very practical way to apply stoicism. I learnt techniques to meditate, how to respond stoically to practical situations. Many useful quotes to remember.
I loved the episode on Death. It was very helpful to articulate the practical value of meditating on death. psst. It has the opposite effect of loving more fully, giving your attention and knowing that there are things beyond your control.
