Philosophy Podcasts >

Hello and welcome to The Annie Altman Show, the podcast formerly known as True Sheet. My name is Annie Altman and I really enjoy asking people questions about what this whole being human experience is like for them. This podcast is field research for The HumAnnie, a stand-up comedy philosophy experience about how no one ever fully knows how to be a human being. If you’re listening to this now, you’re fortunate enough to choose your truth. I choose to believe that objectivity is the sum of subjectivities, meaning humans collectively create truth. What does truth mean to you?How do you come to understand your truth? Why did you agree to come and share some of your truth?
