Philosophy Podcasts

This podcast is about the many ideas in the world of philosophy, psychology, and spirituality that are popularized by our society and culture through books, movies, TV shows, and the public figures all around us. Insightful ideas are everywhere and I'll be taking a deeper dive into those ideas presented to us in cultural and society. In working to understand those ideas, I don’t mean just understanding, instead, applying various insights to our lives. Even if you disagree with various ideas in society, there’s always something to learn from them and be applied to your everyday life. This podcast will take you on the journey into the deeper ideas of philosophy, spirituality, and psychology while giving you just a touch of helpful existential dread! Tune in. https://www.patreon.com/thephilosophyguy
