    Today we recorded our *seventeenth* episode of the Lucretius Today podcast. I know we aren't yet getting a lot of listener feedback, but I think we're creating here what is fast becoming one of the best ways to get a sense of what it might mean to be a classical "Epicurean" in the modern world. We're now more than halfway through book one, and I urge everyone who has an interest in participating with us in our goal of reinvigorating Epicurean philosophy to listen in, post comments, ask questions, and be a part of this process. In the future we'll have many uses for these recordings, hopefully adding video (such as the text being discussed) and use other means to make them more accessible. We've only just begun.

    Episode 16 of the Lucretius Today Podcast is now available. In this episode, we discuss the indestructibility of atoms and how they provide continuity to nature. In the second half of this episode, we revisit the subject of Epicurean gods, and discuss how the "Organians" in the episode "Errand of Mercy" from the Star Trek original series may provide a useful analogy to thinking about the non-supernatural Epicurean "gods." Episode Sixteen - The Atoms Are Un-Destroyable And Provide Continuity To All Nature
