Philosophy doesn’t have to be only for stuffy books and boring, difficult journal articles. In fact, philosophy can be engaging and accessible. Wouldn’t that be a great subject for a podcast?
That’s why we’re happy to add The Partially Examined Life to the Midroll roster. It’s a podcast by four guys who once were set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it.
The show has a five-star rating on iTunes with more than 580 reviews because the hosts take a down-to-earth approach to the topic that appeals to smart and inquisitive listeners.
On each episode, the hosts pick a philosophical text and chat about it with some balance between insight and flippancy. It’s like meeting up for beers to share in the love of philosophy without having to be a professional philosopher. So, no philosophical expertise or knowledge is required to follow and enjoy the discussion.
