Having a richer appreciation of ethics is an increasing part of my personal intellectual journey and I’m particularly taken with the reassertion of enlightenment values by thinkers such as John Rawls and more recently Susan Neiman. I may or may not have actually read them. In reality I've been mostly aided by podcasts like philosophy bites, the philosopher's zone, and simple pop-philosophy crib note type books. That Amsterdam is both the ground zero for the enlightenment and the world's most 'bicyclingist' berg is, I think, not unrelated. At the other end of my philosophical inquiry's arc is a bucket-list wish to possess half a clue of what Wittgenstein was actually on about. So, there's been plenty to think about, but, frankly I have few within my circle of friends with the same curiosity. So… food, alcohol and big ideas! What could possibly go wrong?
It is I.

Something really does do justice to the expression Mind Food (unlike certain magazines I can think of). Definitely worthy of another table or so however, so tell/bring your friends.
