Massimo Pigliucci, the creator of Footnotes to Plato, is a philosopher and biologist who thinks both philosophy and science ought to be widely understood in order to make this a better world, and that it is therefore important for professionals to engage with the public. Massimo's writings and podcasts are about two areas: general philosophy (ethics, metaphysics, philosophy of science, you name it) and the theory and practice of Stoicism as a philosophy of life.

(The name "Footnotes to Plato" comes from a famous quip by Alfred North Whitehead: "The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato." It was a slight exaggeration, but you get the point.)
