Philosophy On the Air


It's nice to see the ancient philosophy keeping up with the new technologies - shows how the soul of philosophy is immortal, and linked to men instead of publication mechanisms. There's a new podcast available, Philosophy Bites, created by Nigel Warburton (who teaches at the OU) and David Edmonds. The podcast makes available interviews on hot topics with eminent actual philosophers.

For example this week this is what's on:

Mary Warnock who sits in the House of Lords and has chaired two important commissions - special education needs and on human fertilisation and embryology - discusses how her training in philosophy prepared her for these roles.

The other podcast you'd probably want to listen to, is the established Stanford-based  Philosophy Talk.
