What's The Partially Examined Life Philosophy Podcast about?

The Partially Examined Life is a philosophy podcast by some guys who were at one point set on doing philosophy for a living but then thought better of it.

For links to the texts we discuss and other info, check out www.partiallyexaminedlife.com.
