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.

In this 64th episode of the Philosophy Bakes Bread radio show and podcast, Eric Thomas Weber and Anthony Cashio had the pleasure to talk with three guests at the 2018 conference of the Public Philosophy Network in Boulder, CO, all hailing from Pacific Lutheran University: Matthew Salzano, Dr. Michael Rings, and Dr. Sergia Hay. We talked about “Philosophy as Play” with the three philosophers who founded SOPHIA’s South Puget Sound Chapter of SOPHIA in the fall of 2017.

At the time of recording this episode, which was in February of 2018, Matthew was graduating student at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washing. He was Editor-in-Chief of The Mast in 2016 student ran media company out of Pacific Lutheran University. His work appears in College Media Review and PLU publications like The Matrix and Resolute.

Dr. Michael Rings teaches and does research at PLU in ethics, social and political philosophy, and aesthetics. Michael has published work in the philosophy of popular music, and on aesthetic cosmopolitanism. In his free time Michael plays and composes music, hikes around in the Washington wilderness, and collects records. 

Our third guest was Dr. Sergia Hay, also a professor of Philosophy at PLU. She focuses on applied ethics and the history of philosophy. Sergia is a Kierkegaard scholar and is currently doing research on his views of language while taking into account influence on his work by Johann Hamann, a contemporary of Kant. She also serves as the Interim Director of the Wild Hope Center, a center for vocation at PLU.
