    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!

    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.

  • Understanding Free Speech and the Privilege of having an Audience

    May 6th, 2019  |  20 mins 42 secs
    alex jones, free speech, mill, philosophy

    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!

  • Ben Shapiro is on the Wrong Side of History - Prager U Response

    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.

  • Dennis Prager(Prager U) Thinks You Can't Justify Not Murdering Without God

    April 23rd, 2019  |  24 mins 38 secs
    god, morality, philosophy, prager, religion

    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's 'Us': Philosophy, Symbolism, and Self-Examination

    April 2nd, 2019  |  14 mins 13 secs
    culture, philosophy, psychology, society, us

    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!

  • Bad Philosophy: God's Not Dead

    March 26th, 2019  |  25 mins 8 secs
    film, god, philosophy, religion

    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

    culture, morality, philosophy, psychology

    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?’

    I talk some Spider-Man in this one friends! More so focussing on the new one, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Anyway, how does this film connect with the audience? It connects with everyone, that's the point. But what does this connection do for our lives? What does it force us to examine? Tune in!
