Stoic Podcast: Painted Porch Episode 1

I'm now part of a podcast team and we just published our first episode! Painted Porch is a monthly show focused on modern stoicism; its practices, our community, and the voices that are helping to spread the word. Mark Johnston, Greg Milner, and myself are excited to have started this project and I hope it becomes a useful resource for all you Stoics out there.

In the first episode we talk a bit about how Stoicism speaks to people with a variety of philosophical and religions backgrounds and then Mark interviews Micheal Jones, a stoic who also happens to be the pastor of a church in Taylor, Michigan. I really enjoyed the interview and I hope you find it interesting as well.

Painted Porch, by the way, is a reference to the Stoa Poikile. That's the ancient painted porch from which Stoicism earned its name. Zeno was a fan of open air classrooms!

If you want to give the podcast a listen, it will always be posted on It will also be on iTunes soon, though I didn't see it last I checked. I will, of course, mention each episode here on Immoderate Stoic and I'll post the RSS feed below for anyone that wants it. Also, we definitively welcome feedback. We're new to this and we can't get better without knowing what you think.

Thanks for listening!
