Description (podcaster-provided):

Examining Ethics is an ethics podcast produced by The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University. Everybody wrestles with questions about ethics. Some of those questions are easy to figure out. Should I murder someone? No! But other questions are more difficult to answer. Examining Ethics doesn’t provide answers to these ethical dilemmas, but instead leaves listeners with tools and ideas from some of the biggest names in moral philosophy and ethics. Academic philosophy and ethics can sometimes be difficult to understand, and our accessible, open-minded content bridges the gap between scholars and everyone else. Examining Ethics is hosted and produced by Christiane Wisehart.

"Examining Ethics" is a podcast produced by The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University. The show, hosted and produced by Christiane Wisehart, delves into complex and often nuanced ethical dilemmas, offering listeners tools and ideas from prominent figures in moral philosophy and ethics. Rather than providing concrete answers, the podcast aims to make academic philosophy more accessible and understandable to a broader audience.

The episodes cover a wide range of topics, reflecting the multifaceted nature of ethics. Key themes consistently explored include biases in technology, the role of forgiveness, the act of taking offense, and the ethics of comedic roasts. Discussions often touch on the intersection of ethics with societal and individual issues like race, gender, climate change, and social justice. Several episodes focus on specific philosophical inquiries such as epistemology, moral psychology, and the relationship between trust and technology.

Episodes also delve into the ethics surrounding contemporary issues like climate change, democratic principles, humanitarianism, and reproductive justice. The podcast frequently features philosophers who discuss their research and perspectives on these pressing topics, aiming to shed light on their broader social implications. Further, it explores ethical considerations in areas like philanthropy, immigration, policing, and vaccine distribution.

Listeners can also find episodes that examine the ethical dimensions of personal and societal practices, from motherhood and disability to urban living and the evolution of human kindness. By tackling both theoretical and practical ethical questions, the podcast provides a platform for insightful, critical reflection on how ethical principles apply in various contexts of modern life.

Overall, "Examining Ethics" invites listeners to engage with challenging ethical questions and think critically about the role of ethics in everyday decisions and broader societal issues.
