It sometimes feels as if this podcast project is jinxed. I have already had to cancel two interviews due to illness on the day of interview (Richard Kearney and Kim Sterelny). Then, while in Lisbon last week, my laptop got stolen, which meant that I lost all original recordings, including one not yet published hence irrevocably lost (with Bernd Carsten Stahl – the recorded files are so large that I haven’t made backups until trimming them down to size *lesson learned*). The theft also meant that I had to cancel a scheduled interview with Andrew Feenberg. Until now, I also thought I had lost a marvelous interview with Kristin Shrader-Frechette, but discovered I had made downsampled MP3 version of it, which I’m now working hard to restore.
After the first 9 episodes, I have learned a lot – both from experience and listener feedback – so I will make some changes to the format for the upcoming episode. If all goes well, I hope and expect to reboot SuchThatCast again before the end of October. It’s about time, especially since I’ve got several intriguing guests scheduled for the weeks to come. Thanks for your patience, and follow SuchThatCast on Facebook or Twitter if you want to be notified when the next episode airs.
Welcome to SuchThatCast, a free philosophy podcast featuring free-form conversations with some of the most influential and interesting philosophers of our day.
I’ve received several questions about how best to support SuchThatCast. I would be very grateful for any of the following gestures:
Like the Facebook page (it will only notify you of new episodes, and occasionally some other relevant information).
If you’re using iTunes, Stitcher or similar, I would highly appreciate it if you rate the podcast and/or individual episodes.
Help me spread the word by linking from your Web site; posting on mailing lists, web sites, social media sites; or by plain old word of mouth.
I’m not allowed to post links to Wikipedia myself (it’s against their external links guidelines), so I would highly appreciate it if listeners add links/references to Wikipedia if you think an episode contains relevant and unique information.
Should you come across an ad that looks interesting, it won’t hurt if you pay them a visit.
Suggest philosophers to interview, especially if you know of someone happening to be in the vicinity of the Netherlands.
