IMHO The rock was too abrasive for the context of the show. For me, it was disruptive to my thought process and pulled my attention from his words and ultimate message. It was wise to pull it.

First time listening to this podcast. Enjoyed the way it makes me look at things differently and question what I believe. The ideas presented can be different and help to build understanding. I looked forward to listening to more new podcasts as well as going back to older recordings.

Philosophize This is one of my favorite podcasts of the couple dozen I subscribe to. It's geared for the beginner and the host, Stephen West, makes philosophy relevant to interested lay-people who'd rather not sit through an overly academic discourse, or listen to multiple hosts jabbering over each other. He has an amazing ability to provide a concise summary of complicated ideas in a 30 minute, no-frills format (even more amazing that he apparently does everything himself - no support team!). I appreciate the way he puts ideas into the context of their time period, then relates those ideas to our current situation, and also looks ahead to what future civilizations may think of our ideas. Even though it's just his perspective, I find it surprisingly unbiased (or maybe that's my own bias showing 😊). My only critiques are that I'd like more frequent episodes, and an occasional guest to explore certain topics (I enjoyed the one episode he did with the author of a book on stoicism). I understand those are difficult to do as a one-man operation, so I continue to look forward to whatever content the engaging Uncle Stephen can give his audience!

I am so grateful to have started with this podcast in learning about philosophy. I'm getting up there in years and despite some pretty good schooling, I never stuck my toe in the pool of philosophy. Thanks, guy!

I came to this podcast because of The Good Place TV show, that showed me philosophy is accessible to everyone. Now I can't get enough. Great show, interesting topics, awesomely delivered! Thank you :)

The way Religion and social structure was explained really captivated me. It was eye opener over eye opener in tandem.
