Welcome to the Moral Imagination Podcast.

The overarching theme of my podcast is what it means to be a human person and what makes for a meaningful and good life.

We will discuss philosophy of the human person, culture, religion, social philosophy, and many other related topics, like education, learning, economics, food, technology, artificial intelligence, and intellectual history. My goal is to interact with ideas and people whose work I find challenging, and intellectually and socially important.

Smart!

Unlike so many others, this podcast is intelligent...very intelligent! Michael Matheson Miller is an extremely smart, well-rounded host who leads his highly articulate guests in smart conversations through issues that others won't touch (or don't know how). It's totally worth your time.
