Historically accurate conversations with the past

All conversations are 100% human researched and 100% historically accurate to what that person actually said. You don’t need to take my word for it, since citations are included in every post.

In the 7 months since I’ve launched this project, generative AI has become very popular, so now I need to make this abundantly clear: there is absolutely no AI involved in this project.

Reading an article here is equivalent to reading a book summary for whichever book the article is based on (though it is hopefully more entertaining than the typical book summary). It is meant to be educational, while presenting the information in an entertaining format.

Generative AI (ChatGPT & friends) is good for entertainment, and horrible for factual accuracy.

What is it that you actually do?

I read books written by important historical figures, deconstruct their thoughts and ideas, find the most interesting parts, then synthesize those into a dialogue.

What kinds of topics do you cover?

Mostly anything in the realm of liberal arts and social sciences. You can expect to see philosophy, history, economics, psychology, political science, and things like that.

One of the goals of this project is to make foundational knowledge more accessible. All of our modern political and economic thought is based on centuries of work by great thinkers. It would benefit us all to understand where our modern ideas came from.

How often do you post?

Every month, hopefully.

This sure would be a cool podcast...

It’s coming soon™.
