Description

Daniel Lobell of Comical Radio and This American Life is back once again. This time, he's diving head first into philosophy (a subject he knows little about) with fellow comedians (Marc Maron, Artie Lange, Maria Bamford, Lewis Black, Greg Fitzsimmons, Larry Miller, Reggie Watts etc.) and attempting to find the answers to life's great questions. Even if the questions just lead to more questions, there will be many laughs in between. You can listen and decide: Are comedians really "modern day philosophers"?
