New podcast explores what it means to live a fulfilling life.


Season one of Lives Well Lived – a new podcast hosted by renowned philosophers Peter Singer and Kasia de Lazari-Radek – premieres next week.

Guests will include Neil deGrasse Tyson, Judy Collins, Ingrid Newkirk, Robert Wright and the Nobel Laureate in economics Daniel Kahneman.

The interview with Kahneman, taped on March 23, turned out to be his last recorded public conversation before his death on March 27.

While the world mourns the loss of one of the great thinkers, his interview probed the question that listeners most would want answered from him now – what it is to live well, and whether he thinks that he lived well.

His gems of wisdom include: “I’m perfectly content, leading a life that objectively is meaningless, feels meaningful to me, and that’s good enough.”

With each guest, the hosts explore what it means to live not only an ethical life, but a fulfilling one.

For singer and songwriter Judy Collins, who will celebrate her 85th birthday this month, the answer is the arts: “Art in all forms is the only reason that we do stay on the planet.”

Over the course of his career, Peter Singer has blazed many trails.

Dubbed “the world’s most influential living philosopher” by The New Yorker, he has written, co-authored, edited or co-edited more than 50 books.

Lives Well Lived is produced by Rachel Barrett and hosted on Acast.

It’s available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and wherever you find your podcasts. New episodes will drop on Thursdays. Season 1 premieres on May 16.
