It has been awhile since my last post (which was in December!), for which I apologize. This past semester was the final semester of my undergraduate studies, which is bittersweet. And it was also a semester of pandemic and chaos, as all are aware. So blogging was not at the top of my list of priorities. Nevertheless, I have been working on some things which I am excited to share about.
First and foremost, I finally started a podcast! I had been thinking/talking about doing this for quite a while, so to finally get it started has been a joy (and also a lot of work). The name of it is the Disputed Questions Podcast. The following is a general description of it:
The Disputed Questions Podcast: A podcast aimed at exploring life’s most important questions and ideas with history’s greatest thinkers. In each episode we’ll be diving into a classic text from humanity’s best philosophers, theologians, and scientists, with the ultimate goal of pursuing truth and wisdom.
Currently I have three total episodes out. Episode 0 is an introduction to the podcast as a whole, and Episodes I and II begin to explore the text of Aristotle’s Categories. I hope to have Episode III completed sometime in the next week or so. The podcast is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and elsewhere. I also upload each episode as a video on Youtube. If there is some platform you use for podcasts that does not have mine on it, just let me know and I can try to get it uploaded there. I’ve also created a new page for the podcast on this site which should have the episodes available for listening there.
This is something I’m very new to, so various aspects might be fairly rough at first. It’s been a lot of work, but I’m passionate about the project and hope to grow and improve as I continue. So stay tuned, and if you enjoy, please share with others! I’d love to have more people listening/engaging.
A few other notes. As I said, I’ve officially graduated from college, and so for the next few months I should have more time to work on personal projects such as the blog. I hope to have more posts coming soon, and on a more regular basis. Thank you for your patience in waiting!
A few people have contacted me through email with various questions relating to philosophical/theological topics. I have been very slow in responding, for which I am sorry. If you are one of these people, I hope to get to your emails soon! If you haven’t received a response from me within the next few weeks, feel free to send another email giving me a nudge.
For the next year I plan to be back home in Tennessee working before going on to grad-school the year after that to pursue a PhD. I hope to write and submit a few papers; and when they are completed I will try to keep you updated, in case you might be interested in reading.
I think that’s everything for now. Thank you for reading, and I hope everyone stays safe and healthy and well!
