    What are some good philosophy podcasts?

    A more popular level podcast, but quite interesting one is the History of Philosophy without any gaps from King's College (an evangelical college in the University of London): https://historyofphilosophy.net/

    I second History of Philosophy without any gaps. It is quite interesting...Plus the host is pretty fair in presenting the different schools of philosophy- even the Christian ones. I liked it so much I bought one of the books based on the podcast.

    Stefan Molyneux's Freedomain Radio is generally very good (he is an almost Christian atheist, Fundamentalist Libertarian, who believes in "peaceful parenting", but he is still pretty useful). In fact, it is the largest philosophy show in the world. Moreover, Stefan is actually a descendant of the Irish political philosopher, William Molyneux.

    I like Stefan but just a heads up trigger warning on language. He can get seriously rough from time to time.

    Thanks, Taylor. I've listened to that one before, and it's good as far as it goes. Unfortunately, they don't delve into ancient and medieval theology much--they mostly stick with moderns and postmoderns. They've also discontinued the program.

    I love Christ the Center, though. I haven't found a better theology podcast.

    This looks great! Thanks, Jake!

    It's kind of funny that they call it Philosophy without Gaps, given that they haven't covered the last seven centuries! That's neither here nor there, though. :)

    Thanks for the tip, Daniel. What kind of philosophy does he deal with exactly? Does he interact much with academic philosophy?

    He tends to mostly apply philosophy to current affairs, but if you dig into the archives (you may need to go to YouTube for all the videos) he does have some stuff on academic philosophy.

    Yeah, I forgot about that point. I have noticed that it is mostly on the 'phone-in discussions that the language gets bad. His three-hour long defence of Joseph McCarthy was one of my favourites along with his video in reaction to the death of Fidel Castro.

    Yeah, I regret that they discontinued that podcast. And yes, the show definitely does not cover the gamut of history. I mainly just recommended it because it’s the only philosophy podcast I’ve ever listened to (I mostly just read). :p

    Wasn't it Socrates who said that you never step into the same podcast twice?

    Heraclitus, actually. ;)

    It was Socrates that said the unexamined podcast is not worth listening to.
