New Podcast on Stoicism


We’re excited to announce our new Stoicism — Philosophy as a Way of Life Podcast on Substack has already been downloaded by nearly 20k listeners. You’re invited to listen free of charge. You can listen to the podcast free of charge. As an added Christmas gift, exclusively for you, our Medium subscribers, we’ve extended our offer of a free 60-day trial subscription to all of my Substack content, until 31st Dec.

The latest podcast episode, brand new today, is a conversation with Prof. Massimo Pigliucci, author of How to be a Stoic and The Quest for Character. I’ve known Massimo for years and wanted to talk to him about how he first became interested in Stoicism, whether his views had changed, his interest in Skepticism and anti-pseudoscience, as well as what his new book says about Socrates, Alcibiades, good leadership, and the development of character.

The most popular episode so far has been Death, Love, Stoicism, my personal essay on how we should contemplate our own mortality. It’s been shared many time by listeners online. If you’re an Apple user, you can also find us on Apple podcasts. We’re also distributed on Google Podcasts, Spotify, and through many other services. Please feel free to share with your friends. Hope you enjoy the show!
