Description

Presented by Joe Saunders, the Philosophy & Film Podcast explores the philosophical questions raised by some of cinema’s most intriguing films. In each episode, Joe is joined by a different guest philosopher, who nominates a film for the pair to discuss. Together, they explore whether they can learn anything about the film from philosophy, as well whether the world of philosophy can learn anything from the film. The podcast is produced by the Hyde Park Picture House, with editing from Ollie Jenkins and music from Nathan Moseley.
