Philosophication with Ginger and the Beard

Philosophy Podcasts >

Welcome to Philosophication, the show where two non-experts philosophize about all things complicated, controversial, or simply interesting. We’ll tackle topics ranging from morality and ethics to current events, from politics to pop culture, and from philosophy to whatever else we happen to find interesting. We don’t claim to be experts, and we’re sure to get things wrong from time to time, but one thing you will always find here is a commitment to free and open dialogue on a variety of complex and often difficult topics. We believe one of the best ways to improve our world is to practice and hone our ability to engage in these types of discussions in a civil and honest manner, even when we strongly disagree on a fundamental level. If we improve our abilities in this area, we improve our ability to solve every other problem our society faces. Join us as we attempt to cut through empty rhetoric, look past simple talking points, and challenge deeply held beliefs.
