Robert Harrison’s trenchant discussion of the beauty and meaning found in the literature of life’s deepest desires, nuanced needs (including their much richer and more complicated ordinariness) and often complex qualities, aspects, and distinctions, raise this podcast above most others. His...Read full review »

This podcast is a delicious banquet of bread.

I cannot say how wonderful it has been to have this podcast during this pandemic.

It seems like the last vestiges of civilized society appear on this show. I like the music, the hosts voice, the witty interludes. Can we hang out irl? I am very concerned in seeing the word “hiatus” - how long?

Consistently the best podcast of its type; manages to make the esoteric accessible to the uninitiated across a broad range of topics. But where is the deep dive on late stage Picasso? No Italian modernist discussion; Morandi, Savinio....

V grateful for this show and its straightforward approach to the many dimensions of life. From the (very intense) theme song to the dramatic opening monologue to the sometimes heated conversations about very interesting topics...an engaging lively and informative podcast. Thanks Robert!

I don’t remember exactly how I discovered this, but I think it was while searching Apple Podcasts for a term like "Martin Heidegger" about a year ago; not the most common podcast search term. Too bad I have more or less run out of old episodes by now! This is an excellent podcast/radio...Read full review »

Incredible podcast; nothing out there like it! Rober Harrison is a genius and an amazing mind. Thank you for creating content that matters!
awakenedlearning via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/19
A thought provoking, erudite journey through the annals of classical literature, art, music and philosophy. Professor Harrison’s sprawling knowledge will impress, even as the topics and discussions remain generally accessible and entertaining. Not to be missed.

Period. This is a gem must listen to show. expand your horizon, mind, knowledge and intellectual prowess on a journey through time, music and philosophy.

Perhaps the most important public service radioshow in the world!

I have been looking for something like this for years only to find it’s been here all along!

Amid all the distractions, it's Entitled Opinions that I keep falling back back to; a spatiotemporal location accessible through space-annihilating tech and that allows a restoration of a modicum of order in my life. Tonight I shall enjoy the conversation and talk even if you won't hear...Read full review »

Thank you for coming back. I feel smarter each time I listen to one of your podcasts.

Robert gets to the heart and depth of the topic quickly and stays in that zone where the conversation moves effortlessly from point to point, depth to depth with lively, poignant and incisive questions and smooth, warm vocal delivery. As with almost all academics, however, his extremist liberal...Read full review »

For years this has been my favorite podcast. Incredible range of topics, intelligent and thoughtful guests -- a real antidote to what passes for discourse these days. Truly a pleasure. Would I change anything? Well, I'd like more new episodes! But then again, there are still so many shows to...Read full review »

I've only recently discovered this great podcast. Stanford University Professor Harrison combines hip and insightful rock and roll deconstruction with meditations on Humanity's greatest minds. One show on Pink Floyd, and then one on Foucault; One show on Jimi Hendrix, and then another on...Read full review »

There are many shows like this one, where you really want to listen to them because the topics and guests are really interesting, but the host is an insufferable, pseudo-intellectual d-bag.

Clever and engaging, this is one of the best podcasts out there. Oh, and host Robert Harrison has a terrific radio voice.

JdeveloperHD via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 04/17/16
This is the show that got me listening to podcasts. A fellow grad school student suggested I check out the episodes on Heidegger while we were both taking a seminar on him. Those episodes are pure gold, but I always find that when I think I'll be least interested in the subject of the...Read full review »

@Brahmski via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/22/15
I met Robert in the early 90s over a proposed radio show for public radio show that ended up not being funded, and I remember thinking his approach to the topics before him (at that time the brilliant Forests book) is as a guide amid the thorns of academic research to find gems of understanding...Read full review »

Mr. Harrison, with his smooth cadence and avuncular charm, is one of the brightest and most interesting voices in podcasting. Each show is a gem, but I especially adore his forays into classic literature and philosophy. The episodes on Nietzsche and Heidegger are required listening for anyone who...Read full review »
