Careers for the Modern Philosopher with Daniel Coffeen on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 16

I first came across Daniel Coffeen when I listened to his popular 2008 Rhetoric class after the entire semester of lectures was made available online for free by UC Berkeley. His powerful and enthusiastic approach to teaching a traditional academic subject impressed me, and I’ve been following his career ever since–or at least I thought I had been. As I found out in this interview, there’s more to this philosopher, blogger, writer, podcaster, and teacher than I ever knew. In this episode Daniel tells us how he stays motivated after more than a decade freelancing, and how he knits together the seemingly unrelated strands of his successful and distinctive career.
