"Stoa Conversations: Stoicism Applied" is a podcast hosted by Caleb Ontiveros and Michael Tremblay that explores practical applications of Stoic philosophy. The overarching themes include resilience, virtue development, and understanding the world through a Stoic lens. Each episode delves into various aspects of Stoic thought, often referencing ancient texts and philosophers such as Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius.

The podcast covers a wide array of topics. Episodes explore core Stoic concepts like the dichotomy of control, the nature of indifferents, and the four cardinal virtues: courage, moderation, justice, and wisdom. Discussions frequently address how these principles can be applied to modern-day challenges, including managing social anxiety, setting healthy boundaries, dealing with procrastination, and practicing forgiveness.

The hosts occasionally invite guest experts to provide insights on specialized subjects. These guest appearances touch on themes like Stoic ethics, the intersection of Stoicism and other philosophies such as Confucianism and existentialism, and historical figures influential to Stoic thought. The podcast also features episodes that critique and defend Stoic principles, exploring theoretical objections and practical ramifications.

Listeners can expect a mix of philosophical discussions, practical advice, and reflections on how to live a more examined and virtuous life. The podcast aims to make Stoic philosophy accessible and relevant, providing resources and strategies for integrating Stoic practices into daily living. Whether addressing specific Stoic techniques like journaling or broader philosophical debates about the nature of freedom and determinism, the content is geared towards those seeking to deepen their understanding and practice of Stoicism.
