Think Hard Podcast…

…where two trained philosophers discuss contemporary culture, society, and politics. Join us as we get curious and think hard about what’s going on in our dynamic wide world. Each episode, we weave together topics as current as the Black Lives Matter movement, the status of feminism, or the crafter “Etsy economy” with those as timeless as meaning, value, identity, truth, and knowledge.
