Got this podcast recommendation from a PhD friend who I always have long and deep conversations with. I was pleasantly surprised by the content, the fluency and perspicuity by which Stephen West guides you through philosophy as one beautiful story. It's like Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, but of philosophy. As mentioned in episode one, the author recommends starting from episode one. And if that pace is not to your liking, to directly skip to episode 90 (ish). Enjoy!

"If teaching is reduced to mere data transmission, if there is no sharing of excitement and wonder, if teachers themselves are passive recipients of information and not creators of new ideas, what hope is there for their students?" —Paul Lockhart, A Mathematician's Lament: www.maa.org/external_archive/devlin/LockhartsLament.pdf
