Todd May was a complete joy to connect with here.  Deeply philosophical yet refreshingly grounded, he offers some wonderful wisdom here on how to move through this world.  We talk about his excellent book, A Decent Life: Morality for the Rest of Us, and so much more.  He even shares how he ended up being a consultant on the hit television show, The Good Place.  This one was a lot of fun.

Todd May is Class of 1941 Memorial Professor of the Humanities at Clemson University. He is the author of fifteen books of philosophy.  He also writes on topics of anarchism, poststructuralism, and post-structuralist anarchism.
