#310 - Diogenes

Podcast cover
Read more

In addition to being the patron saint of cynicism, the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes is basically the patron saint of Drunken Philosophy. He was famous for living in an overturned wine barrel on the streets of Athens and generally thumbing his nose at the educated citizens of that old world metropolis. This week, Connor and Dan investigate Diogenes' whole deal and see if he had anything worth while to say.

#309 - Liberty, Harm, and a Ride on the Bus

Podcast cover
Read more
This week, Connor and Dan break quarantine in order to venture into the land of make believe. It's thought experiment time! Should people be free to do harmless actions? What if they're really gross? What if I'm just trying to get to work and they're being really gross? These are the pressing questions answered on this week's episode (sort of).

#308 - Jean Gebser, Structures of Consciousness

Podcast cover
Read more

Are we approaching end times or just a monumentally shift in the way we understand the world? If you were to ask European poet, philosopher, and student of culture Jean Gebser he would emphatically say it was the latter. This week, Connor and Dan discuss Gebser's various structures of consciousness to see where we've been, where we are, and where we're going.

#307 - Henri Bergson, Time and Free Will

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode is going to require some imagination, some creativity, and some intuition on the part of the listener. Connor and Dan aren't quite sure they understand what Henri Bergson is talking about, but they like the cut of his jib and they like the way he makes them feel. Sometimes that's good enough.

#306 - Bertrand Russell

Podcast cover
Read more
The time has come to finally get analytical on this podcast and, in order to do so, Connor and Dan head straight to the source: The father of analytic philosophy, Bertrand Russell. We're talking logic, we're talking math, and we're talking paradoxes. But we're also talking about an anti-war atheist who managed to hang around on this Earth for a century. Pretty neat guy!

#305 - Problems in Quantum Physics

Podcast cover
Read more
Where my science-heads at? This week, Connor and Dan do their best to wade through the murky waters of quantum theory and modern physics to see what kind of philosophical conundrums they can kick up. What will they find? An excuse to talk about the '90s TV show 'Sliders' of course!

#304 - Leon Trotsky Part 3: Downfall, Exile, and Death

Podcast cover
Read more

All things must come to an end, including the brief saga of Leon Trotsky. The once central figure of a global revolution finds himself far from home and with very few friends. But Connor and Dan learn that, much like the other socialists of his ilk, Trotsky wasn't going down without a fight.

#302 - Leon Trotsky Part 1: From Lev to Leon

Podcast cover
Read more

That "Part 1" in the title can only mean one thing. Connor and Dan are diving back into another miniseries, this time on the fiery Russian revolutionary who found himself on the wrong side of the border. This first episode covers Leon Trotsky's early life, his exposure to orthodox Marxism, and hopefully provides a little historical context for listeners not familiar with Russian revolutionary history.
