The Phi Fic podcast is our conversation on fiction each month. We are Nathaniel Hanks, Cezary Baraniecki, and Laura Davis-Chanin, with the occasional guest. Together we have read many books with various members from The Partially Examine Life website over the years–some of our older conversations were recorded for ourselves while others were kept anonymous or lost.

In 2012, we began in The Partially Examined Life’s ‘Not School’ community. First as the reading group ‘Worlds of Wordcraft’, then ‘Philosophical Fiction’, and now the equally  ‘Phi Fic’. Now we are sharing these talks as part of The Partially Examined Life Podcast Network.
