I did that. I, Dan Levesque, have now officially launched a podcast into the void of the internet.
Who knows what will happen next? It feels a little bit frantic, a little bit like I'm biting off more than I can chew. I've got no traction, no followers: my primary asset is my ability to write content and record podcasts (this one is a recently added skill).
I think I'm doing this for the right reasons. Right now, our culture is depraved of wisdom. We're lacking reasonable discourse. We're living in an age of pessimism. We're in dire need of some clear-headed critical thinking. And that's exactly what I'm hoping to deliver over the coming months and years with this project. With Bad Philosopher, as a self-proclaimed bad philosopher.
Keyword: bad. Definition: not good.
But these days anyone can be anything. I'll call myself a philosopher if I want. And I'll humbly self-report that I'm a bad one.
Maybe I'm kind of a Batman. Not the hero we need, but the hero we deserve. On an unending question to spread wisdom.
I mean, look at this picture of me climbing up the summit of a dangerous mountain without a rope:
If that photo isn't an analogy for life, I don't know what is.
How much more heroic can a person get?
