Seize the Moment Podcast

Dec 27, 2020

On episode 79, philosopher Ashley Bohrer interviews Alen and Leon for the blog of the American Philosophical Association. They discuss Leon’s childhood, existential anxiety and how he found a remedy in philosophy, Alen’s early experiences and the ways they shaped his drive to understand people, his fascination with the workings of the human ego and its toxic effects on relationships, how they bonded over Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning, the beginning stages of the podcast, the importance of podcasts providing authentic dialogues, how they used the show and its guests for personal self-development, the ways in which public philosophy contributes to the general well-being and sense of community, why the hosts think of themselves as students in a classroom, the intimate links between philosophy and psychology, and how ideas can become medicinal agents.

Ashley Bohrer is the new APA Public Philosophy editor. Ashley J. Bohrer is an academic, activist, and public intellectual. She is assistant professor at the University of Notre Dame and previously held a postdoctoral position at Hamilton College. Her research in the fields of philosophy, critical race studies, decolonial theory, intersectional feminism, and Marxism explores the intersections of capitalism, colonialism, racism and hetero/sexism.
