The aim of the podcast is to allow autodidactic thinkers, amateur philosophers and the generally curious an insight into the work of thinkers who are often impenetrable to those outside of the academy.
With the discussions at Hermitix aiming to be informal idea barrages which attempt to retain the excitement of 'the fringes' without falling into the structural 'niche' pitfalls of the academy.
The range of speakers Hermitix intends to interview includes, but isn't limited to: PHd students, authors, philosophers, theorists and prominent bloggers.
