I did an interview yesterday on the popular UK podcast Godless Spellchecker mainly on the topic of free will, but going round the houses a little at the beginning and covering some other subjects. I loved it, it was fun and Stephen is a great interviewer (he let me bang on…). Here is his description:
Author and Philosopher Jonathan Pearce (@ATipplingPhilo) will be dropping by The #GSPodcast to let you know that free will is an illusion. We touch on de-converting theists and the justice system. Also, what can biology and genetics tell us about the likelihood of criminality? Where is god in all this? We also talk about the importance of Neuroscience in the free will debate and discuss the disagreement between Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett. Listen to it – you have no choice.
Also available on iTunes and Stitcher.
What was great were some tweets right afterwards from some of the listeners:
@GSpellchecker Fantastic. I could have listened to @ATipplingPhilo for another hour!
