Driving can be very boring. Talk radio can be very horrifying in a red state. Podcasts are a possible resource. I’ll start off listing some of my favorites, but I hope others will contribute theirs.
By the way, there’s a dearth of good feminist/feminist-philosophy podcasts and perhaps feministphilosophers should try to create a series. Any thoughts on this?
All the podcasts in my list are going to be available through itunes, though I just saw an Intro to Psychology course given by Paul Bloom at Yale is available through yale. He works on terrific topics and with stellar women.
Philosophy Bites: short conversations with ‘top’ philosophers. About 20% women, largely UK.
This American Life – the podcast for Sept 8, 2008, gives a very vivid picture of the psychological effects of fighting in Iraq.
Phil 185 fall 2007 – Bert Dreyfus on Heidegger (I must know more about him; yes I will!).
Neuropod and the Brain Science podcast – I listen to some of these.
Democracy Now/Bill Moyers journal/NPR Fresh Air – I try to catch the first two as broadcasts; the last I look in on occasionally, when I have time. I don’t drive all that much!
So how about you? There must be tons of others to be recommended. And what do you think of a feminist philosophy series? It might be possible to do fairly inexpensively by setting up some of the interviews at meetings.
