Eminently Listenable and Compelling Podcast.
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 enthusiasm for the fun that’s found through interviews and reading great books belies a concern for what’s missing amid the popularly political and intensely conflictual media discourse and provides a different picture from what we tend to think is the case. Harrison’s captivatingly plain (and paradoxically simple) discussion of ideas and the importance books play in providing depth and meaning to our daily existence (as well as the permission to question what it all means) gives a sense and sort of corrective to the perspective and complex identity we hold of ourselves and the purpose of this all too human condition. Simply put, it is an eminently listenable and compelling podcast.

This is a remarkable podcast, filled with guests and topics that normally require access to university classrooms and literary audiences. Well worth the listen. Most shows give both depth and an excellent survey.

I'm new to philosophy and to me this is an excellent podcast. It is certainly opening up new worlds of thought and, at the same time introducing philosophers that I had not heard of. Great job Robert! I enjoy the show immensely.Read full review »
