As we approach the end of 2016, we are gearing up for our annual year in review show, "The Examined Year." In this special show, which broadcasts live from our home station, KALW, we depart from our usual long-form conversation format with a single guest and instead have three different guests on three different segments. The theme we've chosen for our philosophical review of 2016 is "Triumph and Defeat."
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
- The Year in Technology and Labor with political scientist Margaret Levi.
The unexamined year is not worth reviewing!
