The Philosophical Dialogue

Real conversations.

unscripted & unfiltered.

The Dialogues podcast is about much more than philosophy. I like speaking with anyone who has a powerful story to tell, a great idea to share, or simply a wide range of knowledge and experience. I’ve featured guests from academia, business, technology, government, and philanthropy, as well as people from around the world.

I am not just an interviewer of the thoughtful and wise, however. My goal is not simply to highlight the what’s and how’s of my guests, but to understand their why’s. These conversations don’t always reveal clear answers, but they do uncover deeper meaning.

Reviving the Dialogue.

an ancient approach to education.

The philosophical dialogue is not merely a literary style, but an approach to thinking, reasoning, exploring, and educating. 

More and more, it seems we no longer have dialogue, debate, and discourse, but orders, authority, and rigidity. 

This series is meant to revive the style and approach in keeping with the philosophical tradition. Join me in reviving and rebuilding the ancient Agora, using the tools of the 21st century.
