Hi, I'm Jordan Myers and Plato's Cave is my attempt to exit... well, the cave. It's a philosophy podcast meant to help me guide my ascent to the real world, the truth, the place where life is worth living; and I've decided that means getting a PhD in philosophy. Join me on my journey as I cover philosophical works and speak with the best philosophical minds I can convince to come on the show! ***Note for newcomers: I suggest looking at episodes 22 with John Martin Fischer, 23 with Susan Wolf ...
 
Hello, world. What is this MODEM podcast all about? Well, we saw a gap emerging in the technical podcast space. That gap was a deeply technical podcast, focused on the protocols, the details, the how-to-demistify-complex things, the unbiased, un-cola of networking that needed to be filled. We’re not interested in the marketing, or the fluff - we want to deconstruct the new shiny things and break them down into comsumable parts. Maybe also some witty banter.
