Customer Reviews

Funny, erudite, provocative

Congratulations to Ron Mourad for making a podcast that tackles advanced topics in an accessible way. His flashes of humor and good-natured dorkiness keep even the most esoteric conversations grounded in real human enthusiasm. Highly recommended!

Computers Made of Meat?

I listened to this in the morning and through about it all day. What more could you want from a podcast? Really high level discussion of the philosophy of consiousnessness. An excellent listen!

Ultimate Concerns: Rejected Prophets

I've enjoyed learing how authors are constructing their own arguments, often based on prior if archeologists constructing a history, or detectives assembling a case.

Much better than religious podcasts with folks who state little more than
"In my heart of hearts, I believe this...."

Great insight to the religious academics and why they are important.
