Podcaster's summary: Do you like movies and philosophy? If so then "Philosophy In Film" is the podcast for you. We are three almost cool dudes who like talking about the philosophical dimensions of film. Two of us have PhDs in philosophy, while our show producer helps to keep us grounded with his wry humor and "man behind the glass" insights. Each episode draws upon a well-known movie in order to help animate and illuminate a basic philosophical theme or question. We also like to enjoy a feature "episode beer" to help deepen our philosophical thoughts. Come join our conversation at "Philosophy in Film."
