The Partially Examined Life podcast

Here is an interesting essay about the “Partially Examined Life” podcast, which can be found here. Relevant excerpt:

Who is our audience? There is a growing group of “philosophy fans” out there: people who took a philosophy class (or dozens of them) but then had to get a “real job,” students who want to learn more than what their particular courses are focusing on, and a great mass of people who never had the opportunity to study philosophy formally but are hungry for it–hungry to understand the world, open to the idea that this might just not be a matter of absorbing scientific facts about it, and wanting to live intelligent, well-directed lives without believing that some particular religion has all the answers already.
