Philosophy Talk, a one-hour weekly radio show hosted by Stanford philosophy professors John Perry and Kenneth Taylor, ended its first crowd fundraiser July 8 far short of its goal in a bid to close budget gaps, two years after Stanford began decreasing the program’s funding.

Edward Snowden, former NSA infrastructure analyst turned whistleblower, on May 15 at Cubberley Auditorium to discuss the philosophical tensions of whistleblowing and government surveillance. The 2015 Symbolic Systems Distinguished Speaker, Snowden spoke via video conference from Moscow.
Philosophy Talk, a Stanford-based radio talk show featuring professors of philosophy, John Perry and Kenneth Taylor, is facing a funding crisis that may threaten its continuation.
With the goal of making philosophy accessible to the average person, “Philosophy Talk,” an original radio talk show starring Stanford professors Kenneth Taylor and John Perry, has grown to reach over 100,000 listeners per broadcast and has inspired several similar programs across the country.
