but too much self promotion. a distracing amount.

I found this podcast in a round about way. I'm not sure exactly what set me off on my recent search to read up on Stoicism, but I think I've heard through varous other means ideas like "separate what you can control from what you can't, and focus on that", and "you cannot...Read full review »

Not sure if this has been recorded already, but an episode on stoicism if you’re feeling sick or dealing with other ailments would be helpful to learn more about.

The show has lost its way again, he used to speak of Marcus, etc and now he has switched to a help group with lots of begging for money. New apps, discord, personal sessions, new books, etc..

This episode is why I enjoy Tanner’s show so much. It focuses on a valid concern for everyday day people in our every day lives. Not from an academic standpoint, but from a *practical* one. Nobody is a Sage, nobody is perfect, and that forgiveness, while perhaps not explicitly defined by ancient...Read full review »

Practical and useful ideas to adapt to my own life’s journey. Thank you.

Begins for money is gross. Put out good content, then money takes care of itself. The podcast initially was great as a journey. Lost its way when Kai came onboard. That mistake was corrected, but the podcast never returned to the initial enjoyable style.

I really like how Tanner has put together and interpreted these ancient stoic ideas and explains it in a practical point of view which. I am 23 years old this podcast has really helped me develop as an individual and has helped me through my tough times.

I love this show! It is very clear and friendly snd brought me to stoicism. Thanks!
Yoavoren via Apple Podcasts · Israel · 10/29/23
I have been listening to the podcast the last few months, I started from the first episode and have been working my way through. Tanner does an amazing job here, if you are curious on stoicism or want to dive in deeper, this is the podcast to listen to 🙂
JeesonDk via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 10/19/23
I am hooked, so easy to listen and understand. I have shared and continue to share this fantastic podcast, this is an experience. Please continue making stoicism available to any level of education. Thank you
MAZM75 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/22/23
Listening to Tanner’s interpretations of stoic texts has helped me reframe my life. I feel more capable when it comes to setting goals, overcoming challenges, and pursuing meaningful work. I far prefer Tanner’s solo episodes to his more recent ones with Kai (or pretty much anyone else for that...Read full review »
Frustrated caregiver :( via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/27/23
I do love this podcast but was shocked by Tanner’s talk about communism as something that just hasn’t been done right. I respectfully disagree as there are certain things by nature that are just wrong and can never be righted by human execution. Rape doesn’t work for the victim not because the...Read full review »

About 7 minutes of ad reads for 6 minutes of content/critical thought
B3asy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/23
Just dove in from the beginning and will be binging to catch up to the present. This is giving to well crafted words to concepts I have been kicking around for some time. I didn’t realize that there was an ancient philosophy that can help to steer its followers into what I consider mental health,...Read full review »

Please keep airing .
teguhaang via Apple Podcasts · Indonesia · 07/24/23
Can’t praise this podcast enough. Prior to first listening (and then binging) the episodes I dabbled in Stoicism but I wouldn’t say I was very knowledgable or that my practice was very deep. Then I started listening to Practical Stoicism and wow, what a rabbit hole. Tanner and Kai do an...Read full review »

I don’t know if I will keep subscribing to this podcast. I can refer you to the critique of Peterson by Chris and Matt on the Decoding the Gurus podcast, I guess, if I wanted to explain what I think of Peterson is as an intellectual. I know addiction so I can see the deception running through...Read full review »
YourBasicMelissa via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/25/23
This show is presented in a way that really lets you understand what message is being conveyed. Sometimes it takes a few listens not because of the presentation, rather the content is deep, practical, philosophical advice and can be hard to digest in one sitting
MattS2394 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/23
The content is helpful, both original Stoic writings (translations/paraphrases) and Tanner’s (and now more) practical interpretations. I find I need to really focus when listening, which can be difficult when you’re trying to multitask (which our brains can’t actually do). I treat this show more...Read full review »

I am a fairly recent student of stoicism. I looked for podcasts on the subject and this one was exactly what I was looking for.
Memphis Chi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/04/23
I look for thoughtful content in my podcasts, and this is quickly one of my favorites. The episodes are not long, but thought provoking. Listen to one and think about it’s applications for a bit before moving on. Well-written and produced, with considered condensation of discussion.
OnlinePiggy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/23
I’ve been listening since episode 2, it was just about perfect back then. Quick, primarily the quote, a little interpretation. A man on a journey. Back then it presumed I was also on a path and allowed me to leave the interpretation to myself. Then came the adds, which were initially annoying but...Read full review »
Japars via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/27/23
Incredible content… when you finally reach it. I pay for the ad free version £3.99 a month yet still have to listen to the ramble at the beginning about non related stuff which is just blatantly annoying especially when I’m already paying a small sum. Sometimes even with my £3.99 sub it’s still...Read full review »
Spackar via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/16/23
I would happily listen to 20 minutes of ads for just 3 minutes of these conversations. This is without a doubt the most valuable show I have ever found. Thank you so much and please keep up the great work!
NickolasTB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/23
I just started listening a week or two ago. I’m enjoying this thoughtful information about a subject of stoicism. I’ve been interested in it for quite some time. Tried to learn more through books, but honestly, those were boring. I appreciate Tanner’s commitment to excellence, the variety of...Read full review »
Just Tamz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/23
Most podcasts don’t even have the choice between ads or a subscription model, so it’s nice to be able to support a good podcast with my wallet rather than have to hear another war thunder ad. This choice alone makes 5 stars a no brainer. But the actual difference this podcast has made for me by...Read full review »
Dylan PB via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/12/23
I can understand ads and getting paid, but when it’s literally 5 mins of ads and 3 mins of actual episode is too much. This isn’t the stoic way. When we value money over teaching it’s time to step back and reevaluate why you’re in this. Used to be such a great show too
JohnTheAthiest via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/23
As a young and growing stoic, this podcast is vital to keeping me consistent and providing me with new brain food to keep growing. Episodes are usually constant and great quality. The hosts obviously really care and are putting their best effort into providing quality stoic content. Completely...Read full review »

I have long been intrigued by stoicism as part of my personal development journey. This podcast has a diverse number of topics that fall under stoicism and has opened me to new and great ways to explore it further. Very good content and great guests.
C2theN via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/26/23
I appreciate all your hard work putting this together
ChiTownCuban via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/24/23
I stumbled upon this show randomly. I have it a try and I really enjoy it! It’s perfect for a daily reading/listening practice and the episodes are short so they fit into my morning schedule or commute easily.
BTTDL via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/23
A friend of mine turned me onto this podcast, I always knew Tanner as “the podcast guy” but I’m glad he found this niche he seems so into and is growing such a great platform for those interested in this philosophy
gmh23456 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/23
In these brief episodes, Tanner gives the listener plenty to think about. These are heavy topics, quoted from ancient philosophers, so taking them in small bits with Tanner's input is helpful. A worthwhile listen!Read full review »

If you’re interested in mythology and the life lessons you can gain, this podcast is for you. Make sure to check it out. It’s a whale produce.
Maya Acosta- Health Lifestyle via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/14/23
I am using this podcast to work my way through “Meditations”. I listen to the appropriate meditation, then read it myself and journal about how it relates to my life. Tanner has illuminated parts of the book that, quite frankly tested my translation abilities. I am so happy to hear about all the...Read full review »

Thank you for this podcast! All the knowledge needed to practice stoicism in our modern world.
Andrew Pledger via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/23
Interesting podcast. As someone who actually didn’t even know what stoicism was it’s nice to have it broken down in a way I can understand. Also love the soothing voice of the host.
PodcastLover52 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/23
Some really interesting old views analysed in new and intriguing ways. The variable lengths is also a nice plus as it’s easy to jump into
MattCulmer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/08/23
One of the few podcasts that I listen to continuously. I always look forward to a new episode and it really inspired me to apply stoicism to my everyday life.
Bob2312312 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/03/23
Host does a great job explaining concepts that can be complex. Love the show!
mcphersonglen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/23
The host is really great at making you feel good about stoicism in your life. A must listen!
Derek Huggind via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/23
This podcast truly changes your view on life in a positive way by implementing stoic houghts in your way of thinking.
