The Best of Philosophy Talk Podcast

Sunday, January 22, 2006 -- 4:00 PM
Philosophy Talk

You now have three ways  to listen to past episodes of Philosophy Talk.  As always,  we will continue to archive each episode in a streamable format.  On our archive pages,  you will find not just our past shows but a plethora of helpful links that make each archive page a valuable resource.

A few months ago, we  introduced a searchable data base of  our past episodes.   Using this data base, you can generate a customized library of inter-related clips, small and large,  from many different shows. 

And now  Philosophy Talk  joins  the podcast revolution!   

We will  be making a limited number of our best episodes available for downloading via Stanford University's new service,  Stanford on iTunes.   We're calling this collection of episodes the Best of Philosophy Talk

We are using  this occasion to test whether there is an ongoing market for a podcast version of  Philosophy Talk.   If the experiment proves successful,  we will produce a podcast version of each of our shows.  Though we may find it necessary in the future  to move to a fee-based, subscription based service to help us sustain both the on-air and the podcast version of the  program,  we are pleased to offer a limited number of episodes for free in this pilot venture.   If we ever do move to a fee based model,  we will continue to offer our content absolutely  free in streaming format on our archive page.

Even if you prefer to listen to our podcast rather than to an audio stream,  please do visit our Philosophy Talk webpage, inlcuding our archive pages.   We aim to make each archive page for each episode a comprehensive resource for the relevant topic.

Click on the folliwing link to learn more about  Stanford on iTunes and the plethora of Stanford content  they have to offer.

If there is any Angel out there, who might  enable us to sustain the program in other ways,  and maybe  keep our pod-cast free in perpetuity,   feel free to make an online donation to the that end.

As John and Ken say on the air.  Thanks for listening.  And thanks for thinking.

This is great, but is there a link that will work for those of us who are not podcasting software other than Itunes?

Stanford on iTunes is a cooperative adventure between Apple Computer and Stanford. I think the way its currently set up iTunes is required. But you can download iTunes for free. There's also a windows version available.
If you want to use a different player, you'll have to take it up with the folks whose site it is. We're just lowly content providers.
Thanks for listening.

I love having Philosophy Talk as a podcast! I was never aware of the show until I was able to download it through Stanford's new content offering through iTunes. I've already suscribed to it so it will automatically download to my computer and I hope you start podcasting all of the broadcasts. If funding is an issue, just stop streaming. Podcasting is what's in now. Through podcasting I can take the show with me on my iPod wherever I go. I can't do that with streaming audio.

I just wanted to note that the podcasts titled, "Language of Fiction" and "Freedom of Speech" are of the same show (Freedom of Speech).
I really love this idea! Keep up the great work!

I've been using a Mac program called Audio Hijack to save the real audio stream to mp3 files for my iPod. Great that your podcasting now.

I'm not sure if your funding concerns have to do with hosting or with actual revenue (lost licensing income from NPR affiliates or similar), but if it's primarily a matter of hosting I would encourage you to look at Odeo:

It's free for all, and a most excellent resource for both publishers and listeners.

Your show looks great unfortunately I don't use iTunes or own an iPod. Simple mp3s hosted on your site for download would enable those people who own different mp3 players to listen to your programs.
I know iTunes is free but the only time I would mainly listen to your program is on my MP3 player.
