Philosophize This!

This weekend, I spent a lot of time in my car, and discovered a cool podcast: Philosophize This!.

A free podcast dedicated to sharing the ideas that shaped our world.

Beginner friendly if listened to in order! For anyone interested in an educational podcast about philosophy where you don’t need to be a graduate-level philosopher to understand it. In chronological order, the thinkers and ideas that forged the world we live in are broken down and explained.

I’ve listened to two episodes so far, the one on Epicurus (my favorite ancient philosopher), and the first one on Ionian pre-socratic philosophers.  The host, Stephen West, recommends not starting with the earliest episodes, and I have to agree.  He recommends starting with the ninth one on the Buddha, when he feels that he found his voice, and then later swinging back to the earlier ones.

I did find his presentation in the first episode to be a bit rough, although still mostly informative.  But I found the tenth episode on Epicureanism to be well done, even if I already knew most of what it covered.  I’m looking forward to listening to many of the other episodes.
