Work in Progress & Emotional Mastery (23m) – Episode 016

Episode 016 looks at two Stoic topics: the first from Epictetus who wrote, ““Show me someone sick and happy, in danger and happy, dying and happy, exiled and happy, disgraced and happy. Show me! By God, how much I’d like to see a Stoic. But since you can’t show me someone that perfectly formed, at least show me someone actively forming themselves so, inclined in this way. . . . Show me!”; and the second from r/Stoicism, a discussion which began with, “The whole thing with removing emotion from things in life makes me just more depressed and has led me to stop reading into stoiscm. Do u have any advice for me?”

Be Down to Earth & Stake Your Own Claim (17m) – Episode 012

Episode 012 looks at two Stoic teachings, “Zeno always said that nothing was more unbecoming than putting on airs, especially with the young.” – Diogenes; and “For it’s disgraceful for an old person, or one in sight of old age, to have only the knowledge carried in their notebooks. Zeno said this . . . what do you say? Cleanthes said that . . . what do you say? How long will you be compelled by the claims of another? Take charge and stake your own claim—something posterity will carry in its notebook.” – Seneca.
