Today’s burning questions on the quality of education, the value of meaningful employment, and the role of civil disobedience in society are fundamentally philosophical.

Public Philosophy Week—which takes places Saturday, March 23 to Sunday, March 31, 2019—is designed to bring discussions about these and other topics out of the academy and into the public square.

Host Barrie Silver speaks with Tyler Doggett, professor of philosophy at UVM and principal organizer of Vermont's Third Annual Public Philosophy Week, and Randall Harp, UVM associate professor of philosophy, about how philosophy is relevant to everyone and share ways to participate in Public Philosophy Week.

Alliance for Community Media says FCC Cable Vote Will Harm Local Media

The proposed rules would allow cable companies to assign market values to these benefits and then charge the amount back to local communities in most cases. Benefits include items like free cable subscriptions to schools, discounts for the elderly, and fiber connectivity to local government buildings like police departments, fire stations, and libraries.
