A classic story in Plato’s Republic is “The Allegory of the Cave”. Without getting too deep, the basic premise is that perception is not always reality, and that we are often ignorant about the true nature of reality. Well, hot damn! That premise is certainly true concerning current and historical topics such as Nazi Germany, The Atlantic Slave Trade, and Ancient Civilizations. Have no fear, in our latest episode we discuss these topics and more as it relates to The Allegory of the Cave. Check it out, we hope you learn--or question--a thing or two!
