Rather than spending time reading books how about a Podcast Group?

If interested post here.

General plan is to post something and then I’ll give my thoughts. Others can then gove there thoughts and we can focus on the parts that interestus most and see what happens.

Podcasts, I believe, are generally easier for people to manage.

I would like to play along.

I would also add that I prefer reading to watching. So, maybe we could mix them in or have another thread to discuss short stories or very short works of philosophy. There are lots of very interesting choices that come in at 10 pages or less. I think they would usually have more substance to them than videos, though not always.

I imagine such things will branch from introducing these podcasts.

I’ll post two or three by December with some comments. If people can then add their views and reading resources great!
