SCI PHI is a weekly philosophy of science podcast that delves into the intersection of scientific and philosophical inquiry. Hosted by Nick, the podcast features engaging conversations with both established and emerging philosophers of science who explore a wide array of topics within the field. The discussions often revolve around the methodologies and epistemological frameworks that underpin scientific practices and theories.

The podcast covers themes such as the role of values in scientific research, the philosophical implications of scientific methodologies, and issues of causation and modeling within various scientific domains, including biomedical sciences and astrophysics. Episodes frequently feature insights into personal academic journeys, upbringing, and the intellectual paths that led these philosophers to their current research foci.

One recurring topic is the exploration of causation, with discussions on how causal explanations and models are applied in fields like medicine and sports analytics. Another consistent theme is the examination of scientific practices, with episodes discussing the epistemic resources available for understanding historical sciences, the role of collaboration between philosophers and scientists, and the application of Bayesian approaches to scientific methodology.

Additionally, the podcast does not shy away from exploring socially and ethically charged subjects. Examples include the study of ignorance (agnotology), the epistemic and social consequences of commercially driven scientific research, and feminist approaches to gender and genomics. Recent discussions also touch on contemporary issues like vaccine hesitancy, public trust in science, and the ethical implications of health resilience post-COVID-19.

Listeners can expect to hear about the latest projects, major works, and ongoing research of the guests, alongside their reflections on the greatest challenges facing the philosophy of science today. The podcast offers a comprehensive look at how philosophical thinking can enrich and critique scientific practices, providing valuable insights into how science interfaces with broader social and ethical issues.
