The New York Times Magazine’s Amy Bloom, Jack Shafer and Kenji Yoshino debate readers’ quandaries and classic ethical conundrums.
Should I Help a Classmate Who Sexually Harassed My Friend Get a Job?
The ethicists consider whether mistakes made at 18 disqualify someone from an opportunity.
The ethicists consider whether a son’s need for financial support justifies concealing his sexual orientation.
An Inherited Conundrum
Can I wear jewelry if I don’t support its origins?
The ethicists consider how an employee should respond after learning that colleagues praised an anti-semitic text.
The Towel Saga Next Door
The Ethicists consider how to respond to the dramatic aftermath of a neighborhood pool party.
Is it wrong if a friend sells my hand-me-downs?
Sometimes this podcast lapses into whiny liberal finger pointing. Also, they occasionally make comments/opinions regarding areas where they lack expertise (eg medicine, medical ethics) which is suboptimal. I really enjoy Kenji the most.
I cannot listen to this actually. It is so stuffy and uppity. What this podcast needs is an actual human being with common sense and without a law degree. And what I really mean by that, is a Dan Savage type to breathe some life and reality into these responses, while talking circles around all these big fat degrees.
Sorry that it's over
Not sure why this podcast ended but I thought it was interesting. I liked comparing my thoughts on the topics to what the panelists might say. Perhaps the topics could have been more interesting but I still looked forward to each week.
