Blending Two Subjects Into One With Powerful New Mini-Series

Me with William Fitzsimmons
In a book store, a college course catalog, or a chronology of subject listings, you’d find Philosophy and Music in different categories. But I believe they’re one and the same. Great songwriters are philosophers. Instead of standing on a hilltop and decrying their beliefs, they write stories and put melodies, harmonies, rhythms, and sound to them.

Which, if you have been following this radio show for the past year or more, you’ve heard me talk about a good bit. I love philosophy, and I’m finding myself discovering more and more of my personal philosophies inside the music of my favorite songwriters. So I decided to illustrate that in a four-part miniseries that kicks off this week titled (appropriately) “Musical Philosophy.”

This debut episode looks at philosophies around life, loss, failure, success, and the pursuit of some kind of divinity in the process. All done with singer-songwriter genres of music. I’m sure you’ll gain some new perspectives and a powerful experience this time around. Enjoy!
