Interesting

These discussions are interesting for what they are. However, I wish there was a way of leaving a review of individual podcasts. John Broome's talk on May 02 on the ethics of climate change leaves a critical part of issue out. He talked what current generations are "leaving" to future generations of humans as if it were 100% negative. We are leaving tons of greenhouse gases and a warming planet and that's it, all bad. There was no talk of all the knowledge that we are currently in the process of discovering (i.e. solar cells, battery tech, nuclear energy research, microprocessing tech, general physics, and on and on) which future generations will have the benefit of using. The one-sided moralizing that was done was a disservice to the issue. This type of dishonesty by omission is why the general public, non-Oxford intellectual types ignore climate change discussions that can so easily be attacked by mere common sense thinking.

Great idea, broken links

I would love to listen to these podcasts. I was disappointed to find, however, that all but the first appear to be broken.

Missing

The podcasts look like they would be interesting, but are apparently no longer available eventhough they are still listed.
