This is your brain on podcasts

Posted on September 25th, 2009 by

Philosophers with an interest in the philosophy of mind might want to ruminate on the idea of subscribing to The Brain Science Podcast, the creation of physician Ginger Campbell. Campbell describes the program as “the podcast for everyone who has a brain.” The show combines interviews with philosophers, psychologists and neurologists, with summaries of important books in those fields. A recent program, for instance, was a one-hour discussion of the book Did My Neurons Make Me Do It? Philosophical and Neurobiological Perspectives on Moral Responsibility and Free Will by Nancey Murphy and Warren S. Brown.

The Brain Science Podcast is not fancy, high tech, or highly produced; it’s largely the work of one woman who is passionate about the field of neuroscience.  She works hard to make her programs accessible to people from a range of backgrounds. I think, therefore, I am sure you will find them interesting.
