Air Date:
Heard On Central Time

We revisit some of our favorite programs from the past year. First, we talk with about how free, fun events that attract a range of ages can help build a stronger community. Then, you may think that people who study philosophy and ethics put those concepts into use in everyday life more than others do. But it’s not quite as simple as that.
