Description

This podcast is about the many ideas in philosophy that are popularized by our society and culture through movies (Ex, Blade Runner, The Matrix), TV shows (Ex, Rick and Morty, Westworld), public figures, and books all around us.
Philosophy is everywhere and I'll be taking a deeper dive into those ideas presented to us in cultural and societal entertainment. In understanding those ideas, I don’t mean just understanding, instead, applying those understandings to our lives. Even if you disagree with various ideas in philosophy there’s always something to be learned from them and applied to your everyday life. This podcast will take you on the journey into the deeper ideas of philosophy while giving you just a touch of existential dread! Tune in.

A little bit less organized in this one friends. Just thought I would get out some thoughts! Anyway, in this episode, I do a quick analysis on Avengers: Endgame and raise some questions I hope the Marvel Universe chooses to get into in their coming films! We will see.

The recent news story about Facebook banning people such as Alex Jones and Laura Loomer had my mind working about a topic I don't like talking about—free speech. As in it's talked about so often that it becomes tiring. So I decided to contradict myself in this one and do it anyway. In this one, I discuss free speech, John Stuart Mill "On Liberty" and understanding the distinction between free speech and an audience. Tune in!Side note, my next episode will be a philosophical film analysis!

So Ben Shapiro did one of his Prager U video based on his book. The video happens to cover more of the history side of things(which I missed in my review episode), so I thought it would be some fun new content to include. Plus, you receive his actual wording and voice to connect with my responses! As always, thanks for listening.

I tackle a new podcast episode format in this one, taking on some Prager U content! I guess Dennis Prager thinks you can't justify not murdering without God. In that case, I hope he continues believing in God for our safety. Anyway, I deconstruct his arguments for objective morality based on God. I also address his misunderstanding of the English language.

Jordan Peele has done it again in this one. The creator of Get Out has made a great film full of deeper meanings and thoughtful symbolism. I take a look at his recent film 'Us' that has been all the rage. How does the film force us to examine not only ourselves but society itself? Tune in!

Ohhh I cover some horrendous argumentation in this one. Does God's Not Dead prove the existence of God? No. The God's Not Dead film pretends to argue for the existence of God honestly...I explain why that is definitely not the case. Let's talk some philosophy, tune in!

We Are Not Good

We Are Not Good

Hmmm, I give off a little bit of my opinion in this one. Just went down the rabbit hole. I'm posting because I want all your thoughts. How good are we? When I hear this question, I want my gut reaction to be yes, of course, we are good! But the thinking side of me starts to take over, ‘but is this the case?’Thanks for listening, please subscribe, rate, and review!Support the Podcast and Gain Full Access: https://www.patreon.com/thephilosophyguyYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqYKgKlEBRf4658pc8NeTwTwitter: https://twitter.com/brendenweber_Amazon Banner link: https://amzn.to/2Hf7lsJEmail: thephilosophyguy2@gmail.comVenmo tip jar: @brenden-weberYou can also support me by clapping my Medium posts: https://medium.com/@brendenweberWebsite: https://thephilosophyguy.fireside.fm/A Philosopher's Stone Newsletter + Book List: https://mailchi.mp/b747e897b383/aphilosophersstoneA Philosopher's Stone Publication: https://medium.com/the-philosophers-stone
