Nice pointers to dive into a few philosophers

I loved the precise references to the episodes.

I found enlightning the reflections about House's methods, behaviour, and values. The discussion about moral values and utilitarianism is very educative as well.

Narration is at a few moments difficult to listen because the voice drops very low.
