The Hut Near The Bog podcast banner

The Hut near the Bog‘ a podcast hosted by PhD Philosophy alumnus James Hoctor, recently beat off stiff competition to become the number one philosophy podcast in the Apple Podcast Charts for Ireland.

The production draws on the collective wisdom of Irish generations past, as well as, the expertise and life experiences of its hosts to discuss various aspects of life, such as, gratitude, grief, uncertainty, and encouragement.

James says: “I am really thrilled with achieving the number one ranking for Ireland. Our aim with the podcast was to help people reflect during the lockdown period and we have been inundated with kind messages and expressions of gratitude ever since we released our first episode. I also want to thank the University of Kent for providing me with the skills, training and knowledge which have been vital to achieving my current success.”
