    Philosophy ! All you need to know and you need to know all of it.

    This is probably my favourite podcast. I am interested in both philosophy and history and this history has opened my eyes to the Arabic/Muslim period which I knew nothing about. I have also learned a lot of subtle religious background to both Christianity and Islam. Unfortunately I have now caught up and have to keep waiting for the next episodes. Don't miss out on the sister podcast - History of Indian Philosophy.

    Out of this world!

    In 1908 the composer, Gustav Holst, announced his decision to bicycle across the Sahara desert. The only thing more insane than giving voice to such a goal was his having completed it. Peter Adamson tops Gustav Holst.
