What is it

Our annus horribilis is over. But what ideas and events took shape in 2016 that challenged our assumptions and made us think about things in new ways? Join John, Ken, and their special guests as they celebrate the examined year with a philosophical look back at a year of triumph and defeat.

  • The Year in Athletic Agony and Ecstasy with journalist David Johnson
  • The Year in Political Disruption with philosopher Debra Satz
