  1. Chatbot mania and algorithms of oppression

    They’re hidden from view, but increasingly everywhere. They’re the brains behind Google, Facebook, online advertising, and virtual assistants like Siri, Alex and Cortana. Machine learning algorithms are becoming powerful arbiters of our lives, driving all sorts of artificially intelligent systems. But are they discriminating against you without you even knowing it? And, what’s going on with the growing workforce of female chatbots? Does A.I have a white guy problem?

  2. Shelly Kagan on Speciesism

    Peter Singer famously argued that many of us are guilty of speciesism in our dealings with animals - we give unreasonable priority to humans over other the interests of other animals. Speciesism is like racism and other prejudices in many respects. In this episode of the Philosophy Bites podcast, Shelly Kagan outlines and criticises Singer’s arguments for this position, and in the process makes some interesting points about prejudice in general.

  3. t All Adds Up podcast - episode 1: The great Australian property ‘illusion’ exposed

    Our first episode jumps straight into the national controversy over skyrocketing property prices and declining housing affordability.

    Subscribe now to hear Gittins defend home ownership as a "basic Australian right" and expose the illusion at the heart of higher property prices: "The idea that ‘Isn’t it great, house prices have gone up, I feel so much better off’, has got a large element of illusion, unless, of course, you don’t give a stuff about your children."

  4. PODCAST EP.44 – ADAM CURTIS

    Podcast episode 44 features a conversation with British journalist and documentary film maker Adam Curtis.

    We met on the 16th December 2016 in the meeting room of the London production company where my producer friend Seamus works. In the wake of Brexit and Donald Trump’s election the conversation often focused on a favourite theme of Mr Curtis: where the pursuit of individualism is leading us. We also talked about how Adam uses music in his films and I sneaked a bit of death chat in there too. You’re welcome! A few related links below.

    Thanks to Nicky Waltham and her editor friend Doug Bryson for helping me put this episode together along with my regular production support pal Seamus Murphy Mitchel.

  8. Fred Sanders – The Triune God

    Episode: Fred Sanders and OnScript host Matthew Bates talk Trinitarian theology. Fred’s exciting book, The Triune God, is the launching point for the discussion. Discover why it is imperative that we correctly order our Trinitarian doctrine (and why Matt shouldn’t be a narcissist), how Rahner’s Rule was formulated, and the appropriate boundaries of mystery in Trinitarian discourse. Fred and Matt also discuss why compromising Trinitarian doctrine invariably results in a compromise of the gospel itself. Fred’s book is loaded with exciting new proposals that all theologians and biblical scholars would do well to consider. Join the conversation.

    Guest: Fred Sanders is a professor at Biola University in the Torrey Honors Institute. With Oliver Crisp he also co-convenes the Los Angeles Theology Conference. In addition to the book featured in this episode, The Triune God (Zondervan, 2016), he has also penned The Deep Things of God: How the Trinity Changes Everything (Crossway, 2010) and The Image of the Immanent Trinity: Rahner’s Rule and the Theological Interpretation of Scripture (Peter Lang, 2005).
