Hi-Phi Nation is philosophy in story-form, integrating narrative journalism with big ideas. We look at stories from everyday life, law, science, popular culture, and strange corners of human experiences that raise thought-provoking questions about things like justice, knowledge, the self, morality, and existence. We then seek answers with the help of academics and philosophers. The show is produced and hosted by Barry Lam of Vassar College.

Good podcast

“For women Only” is one of the better more well put together podcasts. I have been listening to Slates’ Waves and Gabfest for over a decade and and half. This podcast is an example of the amazing uptick that Slate has taken in bringing excellent content to their lineup.

They get it.

If, in consuming your media, you’ve ever felt frustrated that they didn’t go *there*—you know, deeper, or more broadly, or more specifically... like, yeah, but *now* what? What are the implications of *that*? Or but where did *that* idea come from and what does *that* portend?—your philosophical and practical frustrations are answered here.
