We are just two dudes from Southern California who studied philosophy, politics, and religion around the world and decided to start a podcast where we could bullshit with impunity. 

Austin Hayden Smidt is currently a researcher in philosophy and political economy in Sydney. Troy Polidori is a professor of philosophy in Southern California. 

We met during our undergrad years while studying theology and philosophy. After years of graduate and post-graduate study, as well as university-level teaching and research, our desire is to wrestle with complex issues/concepts and disseminate that information to others. Ours is not merely an academic pursuit. Rather, we want to equip people with tools to navigate the difficult terrains of existence – not what to think, but how to think.

During undergrad, our solace was eating Chinese food at Mandarin Wong and talking about all manner of things: philosophy, politics, love, life, society, religion, sports, whatever. This is an extended digital version of that. Please take a seat at the table with us :)

Once we reach 100 patrons, you'll be able to suggest episode topics. Periodically, we'll open things up to a poll and then whichever topic gets the most votes will be tackled in an episode. 
The Parliament

A parliament is a group of owls. Who knew? Now you're a part of our parliament. As part of our parliament, you'll receive a monthly newsletter full of 'Sticky Leaves' and 'Shitty Minute' topics. Plus, you'll get exclusive access to bonus episodes. And of course, the 'Democracy Motherf*ckers' tier stuff too.

Once we reach 100 patrons, we'll open things up to you! Each month we'll field suggestions for topics and then run a poll. The winning topic will be addressed in an episode.
