Episode 49, Corey Mohler: Behind Existential Comics (Part II)

Classic Cast.jpg

Welcome to 'Episode 49 (Part II)', where we'll be asking some of your listener questions, as well as engaging in some further analysis and discussion.

Corey Mohler is a software engineer from Portland, Oregon, USA. With no formal education in philosophy, it might come as a surprise that Corey is the author of the incredibly popular philosophy webcomic, Existential Comics. Founded in December 2013, Existential Comics describes itself as

“a philosophy webcomic about the inevitable anguish of living a brief life in an absurd world. Also jokes.”

The comic receives well over one million views per month, making it one of the most popular philosophy websites on the internet.

In Part I, we’re going to be discussing the ideas bubbling behind ‘Existential Comics’, and in Part II, we’ll be engaging in some further analysis and discussion, as well as asking some listener questions.
