Welcome to And/Or/Versus, a podcast that explores the intersection where theory meets life!


Each episode we examine a topic through the lens of academic philosophy and our lived experience. It’s our attempt to contribute to the public discourse in a thoughtful and positive way. Join us as we take on life’s big questions with curiosity and humor!
