Interviewing academics...
Odyssey, a program on Chicago Public Radio, may be an interesting source to bring into our conversation about the edLab Seminar. The host of the show (supported by her team of PhDs) interviews leading academics every week. Torey Malatia, the president and general manager of Chicago Public Radio describes the show in the following way: "Talk radio has a reputation for being either inflammatory or pretentious. Odyssey moves this format in a new direction by providing a forum for the best minds in fields as diverse as politics, science, culture, philosophy, law, and the arts to engage in insightful conversation." To listen to shows or read more, click here. One of my favorites is the December 15, 1999 interview with University of Chicago philosophy professor Ted Cohen. Another interesting program is the August 21, 2002 discussion of pragmatism with Richard Rorty, James Conant and Hilary Putnam.
