Knowledge Has Its Limitations, But With Conversation the Possibilities Are Endless

This week, we've got another incredibly insightful and thought-provoking discussion lined up for you. Joining me is Joel Bouchard, the brilliant mind behind the "From Nowhere to Nothing" podcast.

Joel and I dive deep into the fascinating world of philosophy and the power of curiosity in bridging the gaps between different perspectives. In a time where our society feels more polarized than ever, we explore how respectful and curious conversations can lead to greater understanding and connection.

We'll also touch on the complexities and limitations of knowledge, and how recognizing our own biases can open doors to new insights. Plus, we'll discuss the profound impact of technology on our perceptions and the importance of getting involved in our local communities to truly be the change we want to see in the world.



  • Philosophy is a topic that everyone can engage in and discuss, as it encompasses all aspects of life.
  • Engaging in respectful and curious conversations with people who have different perspectives can lead to a better understanding of others.
  • Knowledge is complex and limited, and it is important to recognize our own biases and the limitations of our understanding.
  • Getting involved in local communities and being the change we want to see in the world can have a positive impact on society.
