We are very pleased to announce that Philosophy Talk has launched a subsciption-based download service. For more details and to sign up now go to our webpage
There you can subscribe to Philosophy Talk downloads for automatic, weekly delivery. By subscribing to our download service, every future epsiode of Philosophy Talk will be delivered to you shortly after it has completed its broadcast run.
In addition, you can download your favorite programs from our archive of nearly 150 past episodes. About one-third of the archive is online and available for immediate downloading, with more episodes being encoded and uploaded on a daily basis. We expect the process to be complete within a week or two. And then you will have access to the entire archive.
By downloading Philosophy Talk programs, you will have a personal library to listen to on any mp3 player, anytime, anywhere.
Become an early subscriber to Philosophy Talk downloads, and play a vital role in keeping Philosophy Talk on the air in San Francisco, Portland, and other cities across the country. Though the program will continue to be streamed for free on our website, we hope that many of you will take this opportunity to show how much you support and value Philosophy Talk. With your help, we can keep Philosophy Talk going and grow into the future. Without your help, our bold experiment in bringing the vast resources of philosophy to a radio audience is much less likely to endure.
Once again, our entire line up of past and future shows will be available to you -- including engaging discussions of Marriage and Monogamy, Math and the Mind, Love, Poetry and Philosophy, and much, much more.
We know that the online community is listening. As one blogger wrote recently:
"The program (helps) the listener form philosophies for themselves on issues they may not have previously thought about."
And from a professor at a small college:
"Philosophy Talk downloads are perfect tools for schools like ours to expand our resources, to leap beyond what we may have been able to think and talk about when our resources were limited to the books we could afford... Students have access to great discussions from one of the most respected universities in the nation."
Now its time to show your support! Show the program directors, the guardians of the radio airways, who are often sceptical that there is an audience for philosophy on the radio, that they are wrong. Every time you listen - to the program and to the download -- you give us evidence that can help us combat their scepticism. By doing so, you help us expand the reach of Philosophy Talk.

As always, thank you for listening and thank you for thinking.
