Podcaster's summary: This is an interdisciplinary podcast which uses a philosophical lens to explore any topic: death, time, consciousness, desire, sex and gender, perception, language, truth, art and beauty, love, friendship, happiness or technology. We will critically decipher philosophical jargon and ideas to help our listeners grasp various contributions to the greatest, or the most seemingly trivial, questions of humankind. | | Hosted by Jeanne Proust - https://jeanneproust.github.io/ | Please contribute to our podcast on Patreon, so we can create more! https://www.patreon.com/canyouphilit
