Yes, we have a Google alert on ourselves. Go write about us and we will try to give you a linkback or even go read/listen to you, etc. (When Colin Marshall did this, I hooked him up with a gig writing for openculture, where one of his posts just got picked up by The New Yorker, Slate, and Andrew Sullivan’s blog. Go, Colin!)
Here are some recent PEL mentions on the wide scary web:
Our Kierkegaard episode was mentioned in the National Catholic Reporter. I like that they have to warn their readership about our “occasional adult language.”
We got a mention on the Bad Philosophy podcast, which I’ve only listened to a couple episodes of over the years, but which seems fun, and fills a different space than PEL (I don’t think we could get away with an episode all about Santorum). Any fans of theirs here? Any particular episodes of theirs that you think PEL listeners might especially like?
It also seems worthwhile at this time to check into the Online Philosophy Club’s discussion of Discipline & Punish. A bit disappointing that it was book of the month for all of February there, and yet only seven posts with only four ratings on the site. Ah, well.
Also, my attempt to snare a comedian for our philosophy and comedy episode failed in the case of Stephen Fry, and Chris Hardwick never answered me either, but we got an enthusiastic “yes” from the most excellent and philosophical Jennifer Dziura, so we’ve got her scheduled for episode 55 to come discuss Henri Bergson’s “On Laughter” with us, to be released around late April.
