The Rational Ape Podcast, Hosted By Pong Lizardo
The Rational Ape topics range from philosophy, self-development, health, money, politics, and just about anything in life. There’s simply no limit to the scope of where rational thought could be applied because reason is the lens through which those topics could be examined and talked about at a much higher resolution.
THE RATIONAL APE MISSION AND VOW TO REASON
Pong Lizardo’s vowed to live life as rationally as humanly possible. His mission for this podcast is to affect at least one listener to live a rational life–to live in accordance to reason, logic, principles.
WHO IS THE RATIONAL APE PODCAST FOR?
The Rational Ape podcast is made for people in search of reason in an unreasonable world. Each episode is broadly addressed to any rational person.
THE RATIONAL APE ICON DESIGN
A lot of thought was put on the design of The Rational Ape's logo. Pong Lizardo wanted the visual to be meaningful like each podcast episode because the icon is the handshake that greets listeners.
The name "The Rational Ape" is a synonym for human beings, as such it was chosen as the name for the podcast for that reason and because the name itself conveys a very interesting representation.
The "rational" part of the name describes what the show is about, reason–the differentiating factor that sets us apart from other animals. It's the most human part of ourselves, though we still have animal drives and instincts. That is what the "ape" part reminds of. We may be capable of reason and philosophy but the human mind operates on an ape platform. That must not be forgotten.
The Rational Ape Icon
The profile of The Rational Ape is set on a backdrop of the forbidden fruit. The forbidden fruit backdrop represents the moment in the Bible's Genesis story when Adam and Eve ate of The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and became rational beings.
The snake hiding behind the fruit completes the icon's story. It was the snake in the garden of Eden that urged humans to eat of the forbidden fruit. In a way, it was the snake that made humans see. Without the snake we would not be reasonable.
It's interesting to note that it has been theorize that snakes might've contributed to the evolution of primates' visual system. In the Genesis, it was the snake that tempted humans to eat of the fruit. As a consequence humans began to see. And what does it mean to see? It means to be reasonable.
