Philosophy Bakes Bread, Radio Show & Podcast

Philosophy Bakes Bread, "food for thought about life and leadership," is a production of the Society of Philosophers in America (SOPHIA), which airs first on WRFL Lexington, 88.1 FM, is subsequently released as a podcast. Philosophy Bakes Bread aims to showcase the public importance of philosophy, both for our everyday lives and for leadership in the policy world. Co-hosts Dr. Eric Thomas Weber and Dr. Anthony Cashio speak with guests each Monday at 2pm Eastern, with episodes to subscribe to or download within a few days later. The show originated with inspiration from a talk that Weber gave in receiving the Mississippi Humanities Council's 2015 Public Scholar Award. He then created a pilot podcast, posting four episodes between then and 2016. In 2017, WRFL welcomed Weber and Cashio's proposal for a SOPHIA sponsored program.

This is the speech Dr. Eric Thomas Weber gave in thanks and acceptance of the Mississippi Humanities Council's 2015 Public Humanities Scholar Award. The address was delivered in the Old Capitol Building in Jackson, MS, on Friday, February 13, 2015. NOTE: This recording was made with my cellphone in my suit jacket. Consequently, there are clothing-noises and odd sounds related to a bit of an awkward way of recording the speech. You can hear most everything well enough. I thought I should explain, however. My future podcasts will likely be made on a great mic that I now have and that I can use when I'm not giving a formal address at a public function of this kind.
