I can’t understand how I missed the fact that one of my all time favorite philosophy communicators had a podcast. YouTube has really been messing up the algorithm because I just recently was recommended a clip of his that made me aware of this. So excited to get started.

I have been an Alex O’Connor fan ever since my deconversion. The manner that he conducts himself comes through his content. It’s not a hairbrained free form podcast. He treats guests of every faith background with incredible respect. I love the way everything is structured and held together.

Excellent, fair, even-keeled discussions about religion and philosophy from interesting and insightful people
Sam Carlsen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/23
I’m a big fan of Alex, Within Reason, and his YouTube work, which is ironic since I am unapologetically a believer in God. But I love how Alex navigates conversations of consequential importance in a caring, non-divisive manner. He is respectful to all of his guests, and asks thought provoking...Read full review »

I’ve been a huge fan of Alex’s going on 5 years now. His ability to brilliantly examine philosophical, ethical, and theological topics and convey his thoughts with clarity is unmatched. My only complaint over the past few years has been not enough context! Of course I know he’s been busy, but...Read full review »

It’s amazing how he pushes back on every guest he has on the show. This is honest work.

If you like philosophy and good conversation about religion and big ideas, this podcast is for you. Alex is genuine and cares about people.

dbenkovics84 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/19/23
I like the dialogue with people that he disagrees in order to learn more. We need more of this in todays society.

I love Alex’s content on here, it’s been great listening to his chats with his friends and idols. However , his YouTube channel is also worth checking out, as he doesn’t upload anymore on here :/

What an interview and what an insightful discussion with Dr Alex Hershaft! Truly inspirational. He played so many chords in my heart. Tears welled up.

Mahi2320 via Apple Podcasts · India · 05/02/21
Fantastic podcast that never fails to engage me. I often sit with pen and paper to note concepts or ideas for later follow up. But that’s not to say the talks are dense or require a philosophy degree. Nothing of the sort. It’s just a very engaging, stimulating and thought provoking hour of...Read full review »

Love listening to your conversations — great guests and very interesting topics. I appreciate that Alex often brings up veganism since it is such a pressing ethical question and seems to be the next frontier for progress-minded people. Keep doing good work!

After following Alex for years on YouTube, I’m so unbelievably impressed with how far he’s come. He was so humble and yet incredibly intelligent. He’s considerate in every word he chooses and he’s quick to admit when he’s wrong. You’d be hard pressed to find a better podcast host that Alex, and...Read full review »

Initially, I was a christian. I was first introduced to alex via the slavery video, and after binge watching all of his videos, I dropped that worldview. this podcast is amazing. such a brilliant young man. I hope to see the content continuing.
Lilyyy1018 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/20
This podcast, like all of Alex’s content, has been such a bright spot in my life. I’m fully convinced that the world would be a better place if more people had these discussions, particularly in the manner that Alex and his guests have them.
