Well, it's been awhile since we've updated our blog. Since both John and Ken are extremely busy -- not only putting on episodes of philosophy talk, but with full time day jobs and research agendas (which means books and articles to write) -- they just don't get around to blogging that often, as you can see. We always invite our guests to blog, but they are busy people too and seldom take us up on the invitation. We had contemplated just closing down our blog, but thought before taking that step, we'd try one more innovation. What we're going to do is for every show, post something more or less based on the opening segment of the show -- which we think through hard in advance -- in order to just get the discussion started. It should be up and running each week before the show actually airs on Sunday -- either Friday or Saturday or perhaps at the latest Sunday morning itself.
We will open comments and we will monitor comments during the show, at least if the broadcast is not one of our growing number of pre-recorded shows. But be warned that we will also feel free to delete comments that are simply spam, irrelevant, inappropriate, etc.
We hope this policy revives our blog. We love the idea of a blog. It's just that our two principals and our many guests are very, very busy people.
We start with this week's Dionysus Awards show. We should have a post up shortly to get the discussion going. We've received dozens of e-mails and comments on our face book page. Hopefully, there will be lots of traffic here too.
