Host of Plato's Cave
Hello, my name is Jordan and I'm the host of this show. I graduated the University of Pittsburgh in 2019 with a degree in engineering and a minor in philosophy and now I'm preparing to hopefully return to academia as a PhD student. This podcast is one way in which I'll keep my philosophical skills sharp and try to soak up all the wisdom I can from the best people in the field.
