A MUST LISTEN!!

This podcast is a must listen; not only for those who are interested in philosophy. This is a must listen for those interested in society!

She tackles the hard topics that society is facing today.

Essential listening for philosophers and non-philosophers

This podcast has felt like a lifeline to the kind of discussions that attracted me to the discipline. I wish it had been around when I was in grad school. I am hoping to use this podcast to introduce my students to philosophical discussions outside of the mainstream canon. As someone who teaches Phil of Race, i keep coming back to different episodes and I find myself incorporating new ideas into my lectures after listening to the podcast. The only downside, and this is no a dig on Cherry or her superb podcast, is that the apple podcast ap does not archive every single episode, so I cannot download some of the early episodes again (e.g., Kristie Dotson's podcast from way back has been my go-to episode for when philosophy gets me in a funk).
