great service, but the reading is horrible
As someone who hasn't touched the classics in ages, I found this to be a fantastic way to dip my toes in it again. However, I have a very hard time getting through the podcasts because the readers are so robotic. They don't ever seem to emphasize any words, concepts, or sentences and they never place appropriate pauses to let you digest what you just heard. The day they get some better readers for the text, I'll be the first to give it another try.

More reviews of The Philosophy Podcast
Excellent Podcast. A gift. To have access to the some of the writings of the greatest philosophers of our time and past is truly a gift that the casual listener to the philosophical professional can enjoy. A joy, and a great tool to learn from. Keep them coming.

I enjoy the readings and am left with thought. It is alot to take in, so I relisten and rethink.

Imagine some of the most challenging and stimulating philosophical texts read by the most boring, robotic voice imaginable. Great concept, terrible execution.
