This guy’s of the left, and he isn’t shy about it. I don’t care about politics. I want to learn about stoicism as a source of self betterment. Not for the sake of being part of a social movement.

I like show. I’ve tried many philosophy podcast and this is one of the best. With all that being said, the interviews are painful. It’s not the guest or the content(although some is redundant) it’s the audio with about 99% of them as well as the flow of the conversation. I might have to go to the...Read full review »

Please stop interrupting so much.

Initially, listening to the podcast with Simon on his own, I found his...earnestness a little irritating, but he grows on you and his interviewing and selection of guests has been top notch.

There are interesting guests and subject matter which are explored in this Podcast and the host appears to be sincere and genuine. However the volume of Podcasts that the host provides, sometimes means that quantity is to the fore rather than quality and sometimes it can sound the same from...Read full review »

Simon does a fantastic job in interpreting and transforming the stoic teachings for modern times in small bites. His interpretations are eye openers and this is an ideal place for someone to begin their journey into stoicism or for those looking for daily study.

I am new to these Stoic studies, or I suppose habits and/or lifestyles. I feel myself in a rut most of the time due to battling a mental illness so I tend to always try to find things to improve my outlook on life. I’m addicted to self help and always trying to make myself better. And from what I...Read full review »

While stoic philosophy abounds there are few podcasts that handle the material well. This is one of them. Well done.

There are too many resources out there that are fun and interesting but not exactly practical. When I am looking for resources I give it a simple test by asking: Can I actually apply this to my day to day existence? When the answer is “no,” I simply skip it and forget it. This podcast is actually...Read full review »

I really enjoyed this interview. Bryan and Simon seemed to jive well and together brought up some great ideas for practical applications of the stoic principles. I’m planning on listening to it again in a few days to review the valuable wisdom within this short conversation.

OMGiseverynicnametaken via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/03/18
I mentioned this in another stoic podcast review, that Stoic-related podcasts are few and far between — good ones even moreso. I've been on my Stoic journey only a week or so now, and this one was the first that I came upon, starting from the beginning and up to around episode 20 or so. ...Read full review »
