In this conversation, I speak with Zohar Atkins.

Zohar is a philosopher, rabbi, and poet. He's known for writing up extensive Twitter threads on philosophers from Hegel to Heraclitus. In this conversation we talk about Heraclitus, philosophy as a way of life, and Zohar's take on the pros and cons of Stoicism.

If you'd like to follow Zohar, check out his podcast, Meditations with Zohar. I'm keen on the episodes with Tyler Cowen and Zena Hitz, who we've also had on the Stoa Conversation series. You can also subscribe to his newsletter What is Called Thinking or follow him on Twitter.

The subtitle of Zohar's newsletter is "questions to stupefy and inspire" and that's what I think you'll get from this conversation.

Here is a direct link to the audio.
