Episode 1 - Intro discussion to the show!

Episode 1,  Aug 28, 2021, 11:14 PM

An into! Some thoughts and background to the show! There is no quote that we breakdown in this one, but that starts from Episode 2! However, you may well find some true value in this discussion too as two passionate minds engage in conversation on stoicism and philosophy - what does it mean to be stoic and how a true understanding of philosophy can completely transform your life!

We want to bring you a guide for life! Breaking down the unique wisdom of some of the greatest minds that have ever existed proven by the fact that the teachings of the stoics are still in existence today! But so few of us manage to realise the true meaning and value of many of these great philosophical works within the context of modern society.

In a similar approach to the Marcus Aurelius' Meditations for Modern Life podcast, but with the shared thoughts of co-hosts Adam Bates and Jamie Keeling adding the dynamic of two way conversation and their combined experiences through life!

For most episode the theme will centre around a different piece of text or quote from a well known Stoic philosopher from those attributed to Socrates through the words of Plato, or to Epicurus, to Seneca or others.

The aim is to bring you the guide for life, a life of happiness and fulfilment
