Greetings from down under. I am writing this to you at the end of a 26 hour trip that brings me to Canberra Australia, where I will be recording and producing the last episode of Season 2, as well as a lot of content for Season 3. I have a lot of potentially big news about Hi-Phi Nation coming at the end of the summer, so please subscribe to the show if you haven’t already.
The ninth episode of Season 2 is released now. It will be in your podcast feeds first thing in the morning, but as usual, subscribers to the blog have early access. Here’s a link and description:
Hi-Phi Nation stays overnight at the Brooklyn Public Library during the 2018 Night of Philosophy. From 7pm to 7am on a Saturday night, thousands of New Yorkers swarmed the central library for acrobats, musicians, and philosophy. Meanwhile, we present philosophy shorts about the definition of life, the nature of good and the morality of revenge, and moral relativism. At the event, producer Sandra Bertin confronts some white privilege, while Barry wanders the floors trying to get people to differentiate between philosophy and bullshit. Guest voices include George Yancy, Cian Dorr, Kieran Setiya, Ian Olasov, with philosophy by Emily Parke, Joshua Gert, and David Wong.
