I like it so far.
I have to comment that Richard Dawkins in the title of latest episode will disappoint many. I found the podcast by searching for philosophy, and while there was no real "philosophy" in the episode I listened to I did find it enjoyable, entertaining, and interesting. But the Dawkins aspect goes like this... Danny reads out loud some basic biographical information about Dawkins. Danny and Rob agree "All I know is that he's an English biologist and atheist." Interspersed with some more information about Dawkins that isn't enough for anyone to go on who isn't familiar with him (which Rob claims he's not), Rob sets up straw men and argues against atheists in lame ways that show a complete ignorance of anyone's specific work or specific arguments. That aspect was disappointing. But I will listen to more. Danny is great, congrats on the podcast.

My favorite podcast!
Danny has a great way of getting the guests to open up and in doing so he is able to bring out great and often inspirational ideas from them. This podcast is both funny and thoughtful.
