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.

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!

philosophy, politics, stoicism, stoics
Woooo, I try to get all Stoic in this one friend. I found some interesting quotes that made me think of our terrible current state of political discourse. Listen in for some Stoic lessons to consider before your next political debate with your neighbor.

matrix, philosophy, reality
The original Matrix film has become a cultural phenomenon, one that seems only to gain further relevance with age. A film originally released in 1999 was ahead of its time for the questions it raised. The question I want you to consider today: is it so crazy to plug into the Matrix?

In today's episode, I do a philosophy quick take on the new Netflix addition of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. I examine its commentary on the idea of free will and the illusion of choice. Are our lives predetermined just like films, tv shows, and video games?

consciousness, inception, metaphysics, mind, philosophy
In this episode, we analyze the philosophy of Inception. We look at an obvious contradiction that is present throughout the film. But what is its purpose? This question inevitably brings up, is the entire film in the mind of Cobb? If true, does this destroy the meaning of the film? What is the meaning of the film? All of this discussed, tune in!
