When talking about the criminal justice system, it’s impossible to understand without first taking into account the racist undertones that undergird policing practices and everyday criminal procedures. In this episode, we dedicate a whole discussion to analyzing the history and present-day manifestations of racism in criminal law.
The Philosophy Phorum Podcast, hosted by Dhruv Kapadia, encourages the learning of philosophy by providing a space to understand the history of philosophy and current issues through different perspectives. As most middle and high school students lack access to philosophy courses, Philosophy Phorum aims to provide interstitial learning opportunities. By interviewing a variety of people and connecting philosophy to ongoing events, we hope to cultivate epistemic creativity and help individuals value the imperative usefulness of philosophy in their daily lives.
