Theory Talk is a philosophy podcast that delves deeply into contemporary thought and thinkers through in-depth discussions and critical thinking sessions. Co-hosted by Joseph Weissman and Taylor Adkins, this podcast explores an array of philosophical themes, integrating insights from ancient traditions to modern theories.

Listeners can expect discourse on fundamental philosophical concepts such as transcendental computation, the psychology of the unconscious, and the political economy of language. The podcast frequently references influential philosophers like Laruelle, Guattari, Deleuze, and Badiou, offering nuanced examinations of their ideas. The show also intersects with literary and cultural analysis, considering works from Homer, Nietzsche, and Ursula le Guin, and tying them back to broader philosophical discussions.

A recurring topic is the intersection of philosophy with other disciplines, including cybernetics, artificial intelligence, and psychoanalysis. By examining concepts such as the death drive, repetition compulsion, superpositions, and automata, the podcast bridges gaps between traditional philosophical discourse and cutting-edge scientific and technological paradigms.

The hosts often frame their discussions in the context of societal and ethical considerations, contemplating issues like social organization, utopian ethics, structural inequalities, and the role of justice and law. They also consider the broader implications of philosophical thought on everyday life, proposing how theoretical insights can inform practical actions and societal structures.

Episodes may involve special guests who contribute their expertise on various subjects, enriching the dialogues with diverse perspectives. Accompanying the philosophical discussions are recommendations for further reading, providing listeners with resources to explore the topics more deeply.

Overall, Theory Talk is characterized by its integration of critical theory, philosophical inquiry, and contemporary analysis, making it a rich resource for anyone interested in the evolving landscape of modern philosophical thought.
