Armchair Philosophy Podcast

Armchair Philosophy is a podcast about philosophical conversations. We try to make ordinary things sound more philosophical, all the while making philosophical things sound interesting to everyone. We explore the limits of the human mind all from the comfort of what can only be described as very nice armchairs.
