The Partially Examined Life is a philosophy podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it.
Each episode we pick a text and chat about it with insight and flippancy. You don't have to know any philosophy or even have read the text we're talking about to follow and enjoy the discussion.
There are 24 hours in a day. Seems pretty straightforward. But what do you really know about the hours between say, 11pm-6am. From graveyard shift jobs to “secret identities”, who we are and what we do at night is often less fully perceived by others, whether by choice or by circumstance. Peering into the dusty corners of the night, Nocturne explores these often overlooked and undisclosed slices of life. Under cover of darkness, our thoughts and feelings can take on strange new shapes, sometimes barely recognizable as our own. And the pulse of the world seems to alter too, sort of creating a curtain of privacy around our behaviors and even our appearance. Do I truly know you if I only know the daytime you? Let’s find out in Nocturne. Nocturne is a member of The Heard, an awesome collective of sound-rich, story-driven podcasts.
Nocturne is essay radio – a hybrid form of audio storytelling that blends elements of documentary, fiction and sound-art.
The Nocturne podcast was created by Vanessa Lowe and Kent Sparling, and is produced by Vanessa Lowe.
Theme music composed by Kent Sparling.

Brilliant! Actually a good friend of mine had "sex sounds". I think an audioboo is really effective - it got the largest response from anything I ever blogged about. I hope they get bored (maybe they are and over compensating?) Dan
