Education and Change

I told you I visited San Marcos and briefly discussed what I did there, but I didn’t share the podcast because it wasn’t time. It’s time now! I sat down with Angela Leibold, a friend and colleague from graduate school, to discuss what she’s doing on campus now, the role philosophy plays in her new job, and how education and change are facts of lives we should all consider.

This week, I’ve had 200 visitors from the United States, almost forty from the United Kingdom, then a mix of folks from Australia, India, Ireland, Ukraine, and Canada. I’d like to thank you all for stopping by. While I try to touch on things that are universal, I realize that some of my takes may apply more to my country or my region than to other places in the world. Hopefully I’ll be able to join you in your countries and your regions soon. I think to be educated you must experience what you don’t know. Isolating myself, while good for my reading, didn’t allow me to learn. It prevented me from experiencing life and discussing it with others. I’m looking forward to that.

Today’s podcast is about philosophy, education, and change. It’s funny, to me, that I recorded it after getting lost on my way to the philosophy department I once belonged to because the campus has so much construction. Then, on the way to the education building, I was lost once more.
