The program that questions everything... except your intelligence.

Philosophy Talk celebrates the value of the examined life. Our philosophers invite listeners to join them in conversations about variety of issues from popular culture to our most deeply held beliefs about science, morality and the human condition. Philosophy Talk challenges listeners to identify and question their assumptions, and to think about things in new ways.

This is the weekly automated delivery series for Philosophy Talk. Subscribers will have episode files delivered to their automation system weekly and are expected to air the program within the air window each week.
