Metaphysics of Physics is devoted to advocating rationality, particularly within the philosophy of science. If you are interested in rationality and the philosophy of physics then you have come to the right place!

The project is intended to raise awareness of a lot of the irrationality that is popular or mainstream today. Since philosophy, computer science, physics and math are our areas of expertise, these are the subjects we talk about the most.

Every fortnight the hosts, Dwayne Davies and Ashna Sharan, bring you great new audio content. Here is some of the content which has been produced so far.
