Vernacular explores what it means to fully embrace our humanity. It's not a philosophy podcast. Nor is it simply a lifestyle podcast. It's a little bit of both, but not really either. It's music reviews and movie previews, sports forecasts and food recipes, philosophizing on the nature of knowledge and prognosticating on the future of science. Learn more at

Great show!

Not just your average show or weekly food for thought. Vernacular is always diverse and lighthearted yet thought provoking, one of the best podcasts around! Would like to hear more about daily life advice and things to read or listen to. Either way, I’ll keep listening!

Strong start, but...

I discovered this podcast when Zach and Sally were halfway through the second season. Their episodes are mostly enjoyable and interesting, but I'm getting very tired of hearing from some of their contributors. Elena and Miriel have been on the show far too many times and I don't find them particularly interesting. I rolled my eyes and turned off the podcast a couple of episodes ago when they said Miriel would be on. Would give it 5 stars if you didn't have the same guests so often.

Love this!

I've somehow stumbled upon your little gem of a podcast, and I really enjoy it :) Your "Book Club" season is a great idea and making me add a bunch to my already extravagant reading list. I really appreciate your outlook and insights - a great contrast to the political pods I've inundated myself with over the past few months. Especially loving the philosophical discussion on happiness and meaning that I'm listening to right now.

Anyways, keep it up; I'm excited for more!

And hello from Queens, NYC!
