In this episode of the Judgment Call Podcast Nick Romeo and I talk about:

  • Nick’s journey of becoming a journalist and philosopher and what journalism means today in the times of social media?
  • Is the criticism of the millenials similar to the ‘elders of Athens’ criticism of Socrates?
  • How much of an education should we expect from an ‘average citizen’?
  • Is the ‘modern state’ and religion a good way to improve citizens behavior subtly?
  • What Plato’s journey to Sicily tell us about the success of Greek asceticism.
  • How intense was the exchange between the Israelites and the ancient Greeks? Why were their views on ‘laws’ so different?
  • How are the current and ancient Greece connected?
  • an much more!
