Just finished your four part anarchism series. Your analysis of the multiple perspectives made the series credibly insightful, though you never got the endpoint of anarcho- communism, which is Marx’s fourth stage, wherein the state melts away. Please consider a new episode or two on Hannah Arendt...Read full review »

One of my favourite podcasts to listen to! Honestly gives an opinion from either side of each argument and solidly explains everything in a simple and understandable way for us mere mortals. 10/10 only wish he posted more !!!
cotarc14 via Apple Podcasts · South Africa · 04/07/24
The best podcast I’ve listened to. I work long hours at a manual labour job in the forest and Stephen’s humour and ability to translate tough texts into chicken nuggets of wisdom makes the long days seem too short. I often go back and reposten to episodes. That’s how much value this adds to my life.

Thank you so much for making philosophical ideas so accessible and engaging!!!

More Giorgio Agamben please, I loved the podcast on his views on human rights.

We would appreciate an episode on Tecno- feudalism ( coined by yannis Varufakis?)

This podcaster presents its subjects with great precision, organization and passion. It is a true joy to listen to Philosophize This, it’s packed with knowledge but still a breeze to take in at any moment of the day!
Anna.eve via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/28/24
Love the podcast and everything in it. Covers everything from ancient to contemporary philosophy. Hats off to the effort. It’s almost as content rich as a philosophy major . I’ll always have this as my favourite philosophy podcast to come back to !
Ayan-007 via Apple Podcasts · India · 03/24/24
Every time an episode comes out I’m so excited to listen! And then re-listen to make sure I understood it all, haha, no fault of the host because he is amazing and taking very complicated ideas and making them digestible and understandable. Better than any philosophy professor I’ve ever had....Read full review »

Thank you so much for taking your time and energy to make us better human beings. We are all just running around being human ‘doings’ and not just being. And I mean ‘being’ as in becoming better versions of our selves for our own personal growth and how we show up for others. Thank you again...Read full review »

An incredible podcast, and to the guy who is mad about ads, please. This guy has been doing this for years, diligently, through patreon. Let him make money. Or how about: Pay $1 a month and get it without ads? lol.
Holly Whitaker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/24
I’ve always loved this podcast but the ads really kill it. It wouldn’t be so bad if they were only at the beginning, but having them throughout the show is really awful. It’s a shame he had to sell out.
ShaunR79 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/16/24
This is a great place to start learning the ideas of philosophy!! Definitely grabbed my attention!!

Stephen, I heard you on Liza Powell O’Brien’s podcast. I am so amazed at your story, and the impressive endeavor that you took on! I immediately looked for your Podcast! I listened to it all day.

The ethics that come into the thoughts of anarchy and many other things also help with creating an...Read full review »

In my opinion, The show is put together well. Each episode brings something new and I’ve listened to all from the start.
Tympanic babel fish via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/24
I’ve listened in order from the first episode, and it has been tremendous. Each episode has been fascinating, insightful and fun. Each episode builds on the next, and you will soon know more than someone with a philosophy degree, and have more pleasure getting there. This man can make the most...Read full review »

Great educational content AND great voice to fall asleep to.
aurixis via Apple Podcasts · Czech Republic · 02/26/24
Philosophize this is as perfect a podcast as I’ve heard. Steven makes philosophy accessible, and interesting. His obvious passion for the subject is infectious as is his his curiosity. Can’t recommend this podcast highly enough.
shakyradical via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/19/24
I took some philosophy courses in college and got something out of them, but nothing like this podcast. West has no discernible agenda other than to educate people on subjects that he clearly loves. While it may be fun to debate religion and politics with friends, you will soon learn that very...Read full review »

kaannnaak via Apple Podcasts · India · 02/09/24
Stephen does an excellent job of Steel-manning pretty much every philosopher/philosophy he covers. I usually come away thinking “oh now I get it! I agree with the ideas in THIS episode!” Only to say the same thing about the next episode that describes why the last episode was so wrong about so...Read full review »

Stephen West has exposed me to so much philosophy that I would likely otherwise have been without. His research and ability to summarize deep thoughts in a conversational style is unique. Philosophize This! is a springboard into a deeply considered life.
Dr. Gogol via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/24
I never thought philosophy would make my day better, but it does. There are so many aspects to this podcast and the content that resonate with me. I try to turn everyone into it. While not a self help podcast - just makes me feel better. So very interesting, well presented, easy to understand,...Read full review »
Sideofthesunart via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/24
While West likes to modestly downplay his contributions to the understanding of various philosophical schools of thought, he’s really doing a great service by entertainingly explaining what these schools/movements/philosophers believe in an easily accessible way. His writing is sharp, his...Read full review »

هذا البرودكاست شيء خرافي. يناقش هذا البرودكاست وجهات نظر الفلاسفة بطريقة جميلة ومنطقية إلى حد كبير مذهل في المحتوى والتقديم. Sorry Stephen West, I had to write it in Arabic to show that you’ve got fans from all over the world. Thanks for this masterpiece and please keep coming.

This podcast made me want to become a philosopher.
Fission78 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/24
Finally a podcast about challenging subject matters that make you feel smart, not dumb. Steven’s examples are enlightening and often funny and his passion for learning and educating comes through in every episode.
Gussahfr via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 01/17/24
Like others mentioned I find that this show is a great educational resource and the host does an excellent job at breaking down complex topic. Start from the first episode if you want to listen.

Best philosophy podcast encountered in my ten plus years of searching for them. Well considered and curated, informative, articulate, thought provoking. Thank you.
embodiedself via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 01/08/24
The most thought provoking podcast out there. I try to get my friends to listen so we can have some fundamentally social relevant conversations with some depth, but they don’t want to 😭 While every episode takes a minute to really connect the ideas to modernity, West does so in a way that...Read full review »

Philosophy is one of those subjects that can be handled in a myriad of ways - debate, discussion, interview, and what may seem the least interesting - the explanation by one person.

Stephen West consistently delivers a quality podcast that is honest, reflective, relevant, and easy to understand. No bells and whistles, no sound effects, no annoying giggly sidekick, just philosophy. It’s beautiful.
