https://youtu.be/OBXMy4QPwtc You know what would be really funny? If there were just, like, a really swole nihilist.

And he has, like, three daughters, and his daughters go to some expensive private school,… Continue reading PSA: Calling All Swole Nihilists

Philosophy Means Love of Wisdom

https://open.spotify.com/episode/5WHbjisosyNRFiBWjqWwyP?si=kKXiGVQgRmO-goWEDIgcpA That's 'wisdom' - as a verb.

The Wrong Way to Read and the Meaning of Insight

https://open.spotify.com/episode/7n834yOH0xztW9cnuHTFBj?si=HM58ZIdaQJKzAisyy88XcA Your mind, like your body, needs the nutrients and vitamins of good ideas in order to survive and thrive.

Waking up on purpose

You open your eyes as the alarm shrieks you out of your dream. Or maybe you're one of those freaks who "rises with the sun," as if your body is in a perfect cosmic alignment with the universe. Either way, you're awake. On a typical day, say, on a regular ol' Tuesday, what does the… Continue reading Waking up on purpose
