Description (podcaster-provided):

What is the value of philosophy in everyday life and work?
Can philosophy offer us not just a way of life, but a way to make a living?
I profile philosophers who found their way through the wilderness beyond the ivory tower. We explore how they forged a new professional identity, how they built successful new careers, and how philosophy can add value in business, government...and pretty much everything else. From their stories, I distill the decisions, strategies, and habits that powered their success.
