"Overthink" is a podcast that delves into philosophical concepts and their intersection with everyday life. Hosted by professors Ellie Anderson and David M. Peña-Guzmán, the show presents a series of episodes that cover a wide array of topics through an accessible and engaging dialogue. The central theme of the podcast revolves around examining philosophical ideas in relation to contemporary issues and timeless subjects, often through the lens of historical and modern thinkers.

The episodes explore a diverse range of subjects, including fundamental human experiences and emotions such as fun, laziness, curiosity, and regret. These themes are often investigated in historical, social, and cultural contexts, shedding light on their deeper significance and implications. The podcast also addresses more complex societal and political issues like civil disobedience, mixed-race identity, fatphobia, and animal justice, frequently featuring expert guests to provide additional insights and perspectives.

Additionally, "Overthink" delves into specific philosophical inquiries related to aesthetics, epistemology, and ethics. Topics such as the philosophy of reading, the role of intellectuals, the essence of taste, and the ethics of AI are discussed with a view to unpack both their theoretical underpinnings and practical applications. The show does not shy away from more niche areas of philosophy either, such as the phenomenological interpretations of orgasms or the ideological ramifications of biohacking.

Overall, the content of "Overthink" spans a broad spectrum, making connections between highbrow philosophical discourse and everyday human experiences. Whether it is through examining the cultural politics of fashion or debating the moral intricacies of diet and body image, the podcast aims to offer listeners in-depth, reflective, and often critical conversations that challenge conventional wisdom and provoke intellectual curiosity.
