If Plato and Aristotle had internet addictions and knew what "gaslighting" was, they'd probably make this podcast.

Come have a laugh with us through the end times of late stage capitalism! Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/binchtopia/support
 
On Tyranny is a show about political philosophy as applied to current events. It is the Podcast version of Ancient Greece Revisited, an online series of mini-documentaries that tries to rediscover the authentic culture of ancient Greeks. On Tyranny was born out of the need to apply some of the ideas discovered to the mass confusion of current events: from the restriction of our liberties in the wake of Covid to the rising globalism pushed by tech companies and mainstream media. Our goal is t ...
 
Have you ever wondered what philosophers like Plato and Aristotle would have said about modern day events? Well look no further I, Jabari, am the second coming of wisdom of the old ages. Jesus and Buddha flow through my mind and use me as a vessel to spread their truths. This podcast is more than just fools talking about stuff they know nothing about. This is a movement. THIS IS.....Jabari’s Wisdom

In “The Remnant," Jonah Goldberg, the founder and editor-in-chief of The Dispatch, syndicated columnist, best-selling author, and AEI/NRI Fellow enlists a “Cannonball Run”-style cast of stars, has-beens, and never-weres to address the most pressing issues of the day and of all-time. Is Western Civilization doomed? Is nationalism the wave of the future? Is the Pope Catholic? Will they ever find a new place to put cheese on a pizza? Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Who is hotter: Ginger or Mary- ...
 
Ancient meditation techniques from wisdom teachers who are lost in the mists of time are made available to you in accessible, bite-sized or longer guided meditations. Each episode is largely inspired by the original teachings of Taoist, Buddhist and Hindu masters like Lao Tzu, Buddha and Krishna, Christian masters like Mary Magdalene, Jesus and Teresa of Avila, Greek masters like Plotinus, Plato and Pythagoras, Islamic masters like Rumi, Ibn Arabi, Attar, and Hafez, and pre-historic masters ...

Awaiting his trial on charges of impiety and heresy, Socrates encounters Euthyphro, a self-proclaimed authority on matters of piety and the will of the gods. Socrates, desiring instruction in these matters, converses with Euthyphro, but as usual, the man who professes to know nothing fares better than the man who claims to be an expert. One of Plato’s well-known Socratic Dialogues, Euthyphro probes the nature of piety, and notably poses the so-called Euthyphro Dilemma: Do the gods love a thi ...
 
Political talk-show host, Monica Perez, and her propaganda obsessed side-kick, Brad Binkley, analyze media propaganda and news events, providing clarity from the chaos. As an anarcho-capitalist (i.e., extreme libertarian), Monica is an uncompromising defender of personal liberty. As a humorist with a fetish for propaganda analysis and psychology, Brad just likes exposing the lies of the elites. Politics is a con game. Conspiracies exist. And the world doesn't make the news, the news makes th ...
 
You might think you know what it takes to lead a happier life… more money, a better job, or Instagram-worthy vacations. You’re dead wrong. Yale professor Dr. Laurie Santos has studied the science of happiness and found that many of us do the exact opposite of what will truly make our lives better. Based on the psychology course she teaches at Yale -- the most popular class in the university’s 300-year history -- Laurie will take you through the latest scientific research and share some surpr ...
 
Plato's Republic is a Socratic dialogue which deals mainly with the definition of justice, the characteristics of a just city state and the just man. Although it was written more than two thousand years ago, many of the ideas and thoughts expounded here are still very much relevant to modern society. This is Plato's best known work and is also considered his most influential especially when it comes to the fields of philosophy and political theory. The Republic is divided into ten books and ...

The Apology is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defended himself in 399 BC[2] against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel" . "Apology" here has its earlier meaning of speaking in defense of a cause or of one's beliefs or actions. The general term apology, in context to literature, defends a world from attack (opposite of satire-which attacks the world).the text is written i ...
 
Imagine yourself dining with Socrates, Plato, or Pythagoras... maybe even Cicero and Julius Caesar...being a soldier marching with Alexander's the Great army in the vast Persian empire discovering new foods... or try and picture the richness of fruits and vegetables in the lush Hanging Gardens of Babylon...what foods did our ancestors ate? How did all begin? Why am I so hooked on ancient recipes and ingredients? Is the food delicious? Wholesome? Do you need to know? I think so! Recipes, ingr ...

The Republic is a Socratic dialogue written by Plato around 380 BC concerning the definition of justice and the order and character of the just city-state and the just man. It is Plato's best-known work and has proven to be one of the most intellectually and historically influential works of philosophy and political theory. In it, Socrates along with various Athenians and foreigners discuss the meaning of justice and examine whether or not the just man is happier than the unjust man by consi ...
 
The New Thinkery is a podcast devoted to political philosophy and its history, along with its many guises in literature, film, and human experience generally. Named after Socrates’ infamous “Thinkery” in Aristophanes’ Clouds, The New Thinkery strikes a balance between the seriousness of academia and the playfulness of casual conversation among friends.
 
The biggest question of the Century (I'm 95% sure that's true). The question that Einstein, Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, even Nehru couldn't answer. Because none of them had a podcast. But we do! Tune in with your host Atique Kudchi as he sits down with friends, has interesting conversations, and tries to figure out: "What's The Point?"

In recent times, US-Russia relations have deteriorated to what both sides acknowledge is an “all time low.” Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and Putin’s continued support for the Assad regime in Syria have placed enormous strain on this historically tense and complex relationship.

For most of the eighteenth century, British protestantism was driven neither by the primacy of denominations nor by fundamental discord between them. Instead, it thrived as part of a complex transatlantic system that bound religious institutions to imperial politics. As Katherine Carte argues, British imperial protestantism proved remarkably effect…
 
At the dawn of the 1950s, a promising and dedicated young painter named Helen Frankenthaler, fresh out of college, moved back home to New York City to make her name. By the decade's end, she had succeeded in establishing herself as an important American artist of the postwar period. In the years in between, she made some of the most daring, head-tu…
 
Every good story needs a villain, and some of the early chroniclers of the pilgrim and puritan settlements found all they needed for this type of character in Thomas Morton. Peter C.

Whether you are religious or not there is an extraordinary power in learning to let go. A core teaching from the great masters of old is, to use the old phraseology, "to submit to the will of god". In contemporary, non-sectarian language we might say "letting go" or "allowing the universe to unfold" or "practicing non-resistance". Whatever you'd li…

Twelve companies of American missionaries were sent to the Hawaiian Islands between 1819 and 1848 with the goal of spreading American Christianity and New England values.

In the developing world, political turmoil often brings an end to promising economic growth stories.
