About the Podcast

The Free Mind podcast explores topics in Western philosophy, politics, literature, and history with adventurous disregard for academic fashions and intellectual trends. Listeners are invited to pull up a chair in an intellectual laboratory where great questions and great books are explored in the spirit of truth-seeking, and conversations are had in a candid style free of scholarly jargon. The podcast engages with professors and public intellectuals who present a diversity of viewpoints in a venue where good faith is granted at the door, and the clear and reasonable expression of ideas is valued more highly than adherence to any ideology or school of thought.

Have a philosophic, political, cultural, or historical idea you want us to explore, or other feedback? Email us at freemind@colorado.edu.

The Free Mind podcast was developed and hosted by Shilo Brooks, Matthew Burgess takes over as host in January 2023.
