EP 455: Have the COVID Lockdowns Done More Harm Than Good? with Dr. Jay Richards

Pat is joined by Dr. Jay Richards, co-author of the recent book The Price of Panic, to discuss the morality and effectiveness of large-scale government mandated lockdowns as a response to COVID-19. What have we learned since this pandemic first struck? Were the lockdowns initially justified to help soften the blow to our healthcare system? And, if so, are continued lockdowns justified, even today? This discussion offers a reasoned, balanced perspective to a difficult but important subject. ...

EP 452: The Case for Asceticism with Dr. Brian Besong

Many people think asceticism is an outdated or exclusively religious practice. Dr. Brian Besong disagrees. Properly understood, ascetic practices form us in good habits, enculturate virtue, and make doing hard things easy (or at least easier). Join us for a fascinating discussion on the history of ascetic thought, and learn how ascetic practices -- from not scratching itches to taking cold showers, and more -- can help us to live a freer, better life in our contemporary culture.

Dialogue: Can Any One Religion Be True? With Brian Besong and Megan Fritts

On this episode of Philosophy Friday, philosophers Brian Besong and Megan Fritts discuss the topic of whether any one religion might actually be true. Brian is a Catholic convert, whereas Megan identifies as an "agnostic Christian." Themes explored are the nature of God's love and whether that predicts an incarnation (and possibly more), the sort of relationship God might want to have with us, the purpose of revelation, and more. This was a very lively and fruitful discussion, so please enjoy!
