I’m delighted that I just got the chance to go on Trav Mamone’s Bi Any Means podcast! The first half is about who I am and how I got where I am and why I named my blog what I did. In the latter half of the issue Trav asked for my thoughts on social justice activists on college campuses and my thoughts on why philosophy matters. I had a blast, check it out!
