I have no idea if patreon has good podcast analytics or not. :)
lol the pencil argument at 1h 10m. Fond memories of being a phil major who thought he wanted to do this shit for a living :)
In the famous words of the idealist philosopher George Berkeley, “To exist is to be perceived.” Our ideas and perceptions are the fundamental objects in the universe; there is no real world beyond them.

Annalisa Is Awkward
What are we all so awkward about? Annalisa Dinnella explores this slippery emotion. Can she and a group of comedians outsmart awkwardness - and should they even be trying?
