Customer Reviews

Mind = Popped!

Interesting discussions of bigger picture subjects that anchor contemporary events. David Sehat has a definite "take" but is fair, and thoughtful. He also has a good podcast voice and is comfortable doing it, which goes a long way.

Philosophical and intellectually stimulating

An excellent podcast that continually challenges its listener - at the same time, David Sehat will often take the time to explain what may be unfamiliar concepts or academic arguments as they relate to the topic-at-hand. In the wake of the recent U.S. election, it would be easy (perhaps too easy) to focus exclusively on the impact of the Trump Presidency, but this podcast expands its views to deal with contemporary political, technological, and, at times, philosophical issues in modern society, often with particular attention to historical circumstances.

Food for thought

Some podcasts are a pleasant surprise- this is one of them. Deep thinkers talk about how their work connects to world events and technological advancements. They give their insights into what's going on in the world today, giving a much more informed and nuanced take than you normally get. David Sehat keeps them on track and presses them to attempt to answer the hard questions- the ones everyone wants answers to. Good stuff.
