About the show


Hear This Idea is a podcast showcasing new thinking in philosophy, the social sciences, and effective altruism — hosted by recent grads and long-time friends Fin and Luca. In each (≈90 minute) conversation, we ask thinkers, founders, and academics to explain their field and their work. Our guest criteria are: we find them interesting, and we want an excuse to talk to them. Our approach to asking questions is: the wonkier the better. We also get further into the weeds by writing an in-depth accompanying article for each episode. You can browse all our guests' reading recommendations on our library page.
