About This Show
Hard Shots by Six Pack Philosophy is a shorter show about the philisophical side of politics and news in America. In Six Pack Philosophy we take a regular weekly dive into politics and Philosophy. In Hard Shots we take a more freestyle approach to the issues and put out less timeless shows on more specific issues at irregular intervals. American politics were first developed as a political philosophy discussed in taverns between great men over great beers. Join us as we discuss history, politics, economics, philosophy, and beer. References for the history and philosophy discussed in the show are posted on our website. Let’s take politics back to the philisophical roots it came from.

Existential Crises - Hard Shots
You’re panicked and questioning your very existence, but is it*actually* an existential crisis?
That’s what we’re here to discuss today. If we haven’t claimed it ourselves, we’ve probably heard someone else in our lives claim they’ve been going through an existential crisis. Lots of people use it as an excuse to act like a complete jerk or neglect social norms such as fulfilling their end of a deal, but at the same time there’s definitely something to it if evidenced only by the fact that we can all fairly easily identify a “mid-life crisis”. With that, we’re exploring the criteria required to constitute existential crises, ways to either pull yourself out of that despair (philosophically, of course) or perhaps even to revel in it.
