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.

game of thrones, philosophy, political philosophy, politics
Hello friends, probably my last Game of Thrones episode for a long time! Anyway, in this one, I do a short review of season 8, mainly because I think you need to know where I stand on it. But, the focus on the episode is how this final season concluded a major political theme of the show: political violence. Game of Thrones forces us to ask the political question, what are you willing to support in the name of a cause you believe in? So, in this one, I dive into that question and connect it to some thoughts about real-world political implications. Tune in!
