Rank #1: #276 - Appreciating Non-Western Philosophy

Podcast cover
Read more

It's easy to stay in your own philosophical bubble and only ever learn about things from people who look and talk like you. But, as Connor and Dan learn in this loosey-goosey episode, there is an inherent value in learning about philosophy from other cultures, countries, and times. "But how do we do it?" you might be asking. Listen and find out you dummy! (Note: Apologies for the slightly worse audio quality this week. We recorded in slightly different locations and it didn't work!)

Rank #4: #205 - Susan Sontag On Photography

Podcast cover
Read more

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But a podcast has at least two thousand words in it so that means it's worth at least two pictures. What's the exchange rate here? What's going on?... This week, Connor and Dan discuss Susan Sontag's collection of essays called On Photography. They explore the idea that photographs convince us that we're expanding our reality when really we're limiting it. They also take a moment to complain about social media and Dan gives his assessment of the entire James Bond franchise.

With all that science mumbo jumbo out of the way, Connor and Dan turn their attention to something they're much more interested in: Leisure time, baby! But we're not just talking about vacation here. Save that for the parrot heads. We're talking about the genuine pursuit of genuine interests. Take a break! It's important! (Note: Sorry about the slightly worse audio quality this week.

Rank #6: #151 - Chomsky vs Foucault

Podcast cover
Read more

This week Connor and Dan take on two master debaters. You know them, you love them, it's Chomps and the Frenchman. In 1971, these two titans of thought sat down on Dutch television to debate the existence of human nature. Almost 45 years later, two drunk guys are sitting on a podcast trying to parse out what the hell they were talking about. Other topics discussed: sub-genres of sex, being born on a soccer field, and potentially racist terms from the Vietnam War.

Rank #7: #172 - Jacques Lacan

Podcast cover
Read more

It only took 172 episodes for this podcast to devolve into a low-budget therapy session. This week, Connor and Dan take a look at the psychoanalysis of Jacques Lacan, specifically his theory about the Mirror Phase and symbolic order of consciousness. This is some heady stuff, ladies and germs, but your hosts are trying their best. Also, Connor takes old people down a peg, we get to hear what your hosts want to be when they grow up, and they once again discuss the importance of language. Good stuff!

Rank #13: #215 - Baudrillard And The Gulf War

Podcast cover
Read more

Remember the first Gulf War? No you don't! At least, not according to French postmodern philosopher Jean Baudrillard, who wrote a series of essays during and after the Gulf War explaining why it wasn't happening. At least, it wasn't happening the way we all thought it was. It has something to do with simulacra and hyperreality and a bunch words none of us understand, but Connor and Dan try their damnedest in this new ep of Drunken Philosophy! Enjoy!

Hospitality is important. Especially when you're looking to get another round of drinks. Oh, wait, that might just be hospitality workers. Regardless, this week Connor and Dan discuss Jacques Derrida's lectures Of Hospitality in which he discusses the concept of hospitality and the moral obligation we have to foreigners in need, through the lens of deconstruction. Elon Musk, if you're listening, this one is for you (this may make more sense if you listen to the episode).

This week your hosts are going with the flow as they take a deep dive into the philosophy and religion of Taoism (or Daoism if you're a stickler). Connor and Dan take some broad swipes at the differences between Eastern and Western society, and ponder what it would be like to live a slower, more relaxed life like Lao Tzu. Also discussed: Connor's rap battles on Chatroulette, Zombie movies, and getting called by the wrong name.

Featuring special guest Sean Fissel! As the election draws nearer, this podcast can't help but get political. So this week, Connor and Dan are discussing the darling of the fiscally conservative and champion of the free market, Ayn Rand. Specifically her philosophy Objectivism and why we hate it. Speaking of objective, this podcast isn't that, so if you really love Ayn Rand or libertarianism you may not enjoy it. Or you could love it! Maybe you're just a weirdo like that! Who are we to judge!
