Philosophers’Podcast launched

SuchThatCast is a podcast dedicated to getting to know some of the most influential philosophers (broadly speaking) of today. It seeks to provide an alternative to most other philosophy podcasts by taking the form of a face-to-face conversation where the guest is free (and encouraged) to share information about themselves that may not be appropriate in other forums: this includes stories about their unique and often unconventional career paths, seminal events and figures in their lives, undeveloped ideas and generally whatever they are passionate about. Although there are no limits to which area of philosophy that will be covered, my research interests and corresponding network in ethics of technology should make this particularly interesting for the 3TU crowd, and future guests include many names that should be familiar to this crowd, including J.D. Trout, Wendell Wallach, Peter Asaro, and Noel Sharkey. The first episode features Luciano Floridi, whom most of our community should know about. It can now be downloaded from www.SuchThatCast.com
