The Partially Examined Life Philosophy Podcast

By Mark Linsenmayer

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


The Partially Examined Life is a philosophy podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it. Each episode, we pick a short text and chat about it with some balance between insight and flippancy. You don't have to know any philosophy, or even to have read the text we're talking about to (mostly) follow and (hopefully) enjoy the discussion. For links to the texts we discuss and other info, check out

I listen therefore I am

These three guys go along way to making dry, academic tomes exciting! (Yes...that's a good thing). I'm glad they came down from their ivory towers to illuminate ideas to the masses! I can hardly wait until they tackle Wittgenstein...if they can make me understand him I will owe them my first born! Great podcast guys...look forward to each new episode!

A thoughtful, fun, provocative podcast

Do you miss breezy, chatty conversations over Very Important Matters with friends where laughs and ideas keep rolling? Then these are your fellows. Lofty matters considered with a tell-it-like-it-is style. Hosted by self-exiled scholars with productive lives outside the Ivory Tower, but who find the fun in throwing water balloons of reality-check wisdom back over their shoulders.

Loves me some Hobbes

This by far the best podcast in what I would call "The Geek" category. This would include: alien talk, gadget toys and other insightful programs. However, the boyz seam to have lost their enthusiasm since the first couple shows. This comes from the lack of energy in their intro, which I usually look forward to. However I have listened to each of them at least a couple of times and started reading the very joyous "lethiavan" by Thomas Hobbs. And if a podcast can get me to read something then I'm all for it.
