Apparently someone laid this moniker on George Carlin: a modern day philosopher. I believe it was meant to describe Carlin in particular and possibly stand-up comedians in general. Comic Danny Lobell hosts a comic guest each week and pairs him (or her?) with a philosopher that you've probably heard of and possibly know nothing about. They open with the usual celebrity banter and gradually work up to discussing the chosen thinker. It ain't deep, and that's just fine. It's a fun conceit, and Lobell sounds sincerely interested in the comics that are his guests. It airs once-a-week so burnout isn't a factor (take note daily podcasters) and I look forward to each week's effort. The archived editions are worth trolling through, there are gems to be had.
