Via Leiter Reports, I have become aware of a great philosophy podcast: Why? Radio. The host is philosopher Jack Russell Weinstein (U of North Dakota), and he regularly discusses philosophical topics with excellent philosophers.
Previous shows include:
"On Self-Deception", with Amelie Rorty
"The Other Economics: Welfare, Development, and Justice", with Amartya Sen
"The Morality and Legality of Universal Health Care", with Sharona Hoffman
"On Forgiveness", with Charles L. Griswold, Jr.
"The Humanities in America: the Case for Public Funding", with Brenna Daugherty
On the next episode, Weinstein will discuss empathy, the Constitution, and sexual orientation with Martha Nussbaum.
You can subscribe to the podcast through iTunes.
