Philosophy Bites is a free podcast offered by the Open University in which top philosophers are interviewed on interesting topics (including such cool things as ‘the Yuk factor’) for around 12-20 minutes. This episode sees major Christian philosopher Marilyn Adams interviewed on the subject of evil, though the interview spreads out to discuss her faith more broadly.
This is particularly relevant and interesting for several reasons:
- Adams is referenced and discussed by Gregory MacDonald in The Evangelical Universalist.
- Adams has a non-traditional spin on the problem of evil
- Philosophy Bites is normally relentlessly secular. Nigel Warburton, the main presenter, does a lot of work for the British Humanist Association. The closest PB have come to giving sensible Christian philosophers airtime include: Don Cupitt (who doesn’t believe in God as a being), Keith Ward (who wasn’t talking about religion) and Anthony Kenny (who is no longer a believer)!
