A PhD in philosophy at Princeton University, Barry is currently Associate Professor of Philosophy at Vassar College. This is an extended write-up on Barry and Hi-Phi Nation at Vassar, and here is a very good an write-up at Princeton. The American Philosophical Association also did a longform interview here.The first season has been made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Humanities-Writ Large Fellowship, the Frances Fergusson Technology Fund, and the Eleanor Nims Brink fund.
