Award-winning actor Paul Giamatti and Professor of Philosophy Stephen Asma host a live taping of their hit new podcast CHINWAG. Paul and Stephen will sit down for a freewheeling conversation that may — or may not — dive really really really deep into the edge of the known… topics like aliens, science fiction, imagination...
Featuring prominent guests from diverse fields, Chinwag is esoteric in the best way possible, as Paul and Stephen delve into anything and everything: Are we living in a simulation? What’s the most perfect sentence in literature? Is Bigfoot interdimensional? Science, the occult, philosophy, magic mushrooms… it’s all fair game!
Unexpected, hilarious, and maybe even profound — Chinwag is all about having a really, really good chat.
