New podcast about Indian Philosophy

I’ve started a biweekly (in the sense of every other week) podcast about Indian philosophy, called sutras (and stuff), which is being hosted at Anchor.fm and has a website here. In the coming week, it should be distributed to other podcast platforms like Spotify, Apple, and so on.

Here’s the podcast description: “Sutras (and stuff) is a podcast that gives you bite-size morsels of South Asian philosophy, paired with contemporary topics. Its basic theme is that there are always connections from the present to the past, even across cultures and languages. You don’t need to know anything about Sanskrit or India to listen, just to be curious about how what’s new might be connected to what’s old.”

It’s intended for a general (not academic) audience, hence the omission of the diacritical mark in sūtra. The first episode is about sūtra literature and Twitter, and the next scheduled show focuses on figurative language. I hope it’s interesting to some folks!

And if there are other podcasts people enjoy about Indian or South Asian philosophy, perhaps add them in the comments? (I think we all know about History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps, but here’s a link, anyway: https://historyofphilosophy.net/india).
