Tonight we try to be a little more PG as we are dedicating this episode to discussing Philosophy for Kids, and we have a very special guest for you. we had the pleasure of interviewing the host of Lil’ Philosophers. He’s someone I met on twitter around a year or so ago, when I had just started really digging into the topic of morality and was testing my own understanding as much as I was other peoples.
I spent a lot of time discussing the topic with him, and we eventually started having loads of different discussions. Since then he has started his own podcast dedicated to teaching kids philosophy through the art of short stories and Socratic style questions. I introduce to you Josh Perry of Lil’ Philosophers.
We cover questions such as:
- What inspired you to do your podcast?
- Why do you feel philosophy is important for kids?
- Are there benefits to starting younger?
- What do you think the most important topics for kids are?
- What are the best methods of teaching them?
- Do you have to refine the language for a younger audience?
- What are some good stories for basic moral lessons?
- Have you done podcasts of these ones?
- What’s your favourite philosophical topic?
For anyone that has not listened to Lil’ Philosophers, as a parent or child, do it.

Fresh AiR Podcast
The Fresh AiR Podcast is still going strong and can be heard in a number of outlets.
For the full experience, we suggest the website: https://www.answers-in-reason.com/series/fresh-air/ as we provide a number of links to various resources discussed in the article, however, can be seen on a number of podcast outlets such as: iTunes | Stitcher | Google Play | Spotify | Podplayer – and we are not limited to these either, just search for Answers in Reason or Fresh AiR in your favourite podcast syndication.
Fresh AiR Videos!
Whilst the SciPhi show is quick live videos discussing relevant and current topics, with Season 3 we tried a few different things with Fresh AiR, inclusive of videos taking people through concepts.
These can be found both on the site, and in this YouTube playlist:
At Answers in Reason we provide all our content to you for free, but we do have server costs and would love to be in a position to provide you content more regularly than we do.
As such we have started a Patreon page.
Each Tier has the benefits of the previous tier plus additional benefits
Tier 1 provides basic access to the community.
Here you will see any of our private blog posts, memes, and anything else we share just to our Patreon. You also get basic access to our discord server.
Tier 2 gives early access
Before we release our articles and podcasts to the public, you get access as soon as they are produced.
Tier 3 gives enhanced access
We will give you the podcast server address with the ability to listen in to the conversation live, and message us whilst on AiR.
You will receive access to the podcasts before they have been edited. The raw show, including any faux pas, and none of the after-show additions like the soundbytes.
You will also get enhanced access on the discord server, and be allowed to join us on the SciPhi streams. (Subject to availability, we don’t want to crash the server)
And lastly, we will send you an AiR T-shirt after 3 months of membership.
Tier 4 gives pro access
As a dedicated fan, we not only give you all the above (plus free delivery on the AiR T-Shirt World Wide) and additional exclusive content but also we have a circa 30 minute interview, finding out about your life and interests, and what you hope to gain from the community.
There will also be additional gifts from time to time, clothing, mugs, etc.
Tier 5 gives the Apex of Access
You get all the previous benefits PLUS you get to suggest and cohost a topic for Fresh AiR. (The topic does have to be running with the theme of Fresh AiR, e.g. a Philosophical/Scientific angle of sorts)
Tiers may be subject to review and change in future if required, but you will always be informed in advance.
