Wonderful Introduction to Objectivism

This podcast is very thought provoking. I love the question/answer format that most shows follow. The format keeps the show very entertaining because the topics switch so drastically in each show. Even though I haven't had any formal philosophy classes, I never feel like Dr. Diana Hsieh is talking over my head.

Engaging, informative, and it's got bongos!

Philosophy in Action is an engaging radio-like program presenting real world applications of objectivist thought in question and answer format. Dr. Hsieh and her co-host are very down to Earth, exploring questions submitted from their audience on-line via their web site with respect, humor and insight. And they mark program segments with the sound of bongos. This you've just got to hear; for those who remember the beatniks the bongos are a treat. Philosophy in Action is a gem: well thought out, presented in a lively format, entertaining and informative. Highly recommended.

How to think about moral questions

What I most like about Dr. Hsieh's podcasts is that she doesn't just state her conclusion in answer to a question, but generally takes you through her reasoning in arriving at that conclusion. This is especially valuable because she's not just telling you what to do in ethical situations, but showing you how to think about moral questions. I find myself usually in agreement with her, but even when I don't sometimes she manages to change my mind. Great stuff!

Not just for Objectivists

This is a wonderful philosophy podcast that covers a wide array of practical philosophical topics. If you do not know much about philosophy or Objectivism, don't worry! You will still learn a lot and expand your thought from it.

Informative and Pleasant

I love these informational podcasts presented in such a friendly manner. The enthusiasm for living life well definitely comes through! It's all about trying to look at your thinking and make the best choices for yourself. Dr. Hsieh gives advice that makes sense and cuts to the heart of predicaments that are often really complicated. She covers a really broad base too, so the topics are diverse. These podcasts are well worth the listening time :)

Practical and fun

Diana and her co-host Greg cover a broad range of interesting topics with an emphasis on practical application to one's real life.. Plus they play off each other quite well, making ideas, well… fun! I wish more philosophy podcasts were like this.
