Education Podcasts >

That's BS is a long-form discussion podcast where I (and usually three friends) cover topics in philosophy, politics, and science. Many episodes will review and discuss a philosophy essay, science article, or political video. When possible, I try to get a guest. This isn't a very formal podcast, but we try to keep the conversations high-level in nature and sprinkle in humor where inappropriate. ALSO, we have a YouTube channel where we post shorter videos as well as the video analogs of all podcasts: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCD1RiH1j-M6C59z1upPXkWw
