When I’m not teaching or writing for academics, I enjoy bringing philosophy to a wider audience. Below you’ll find links to a podcast that I co-host; some video and podcast interviews (and a debate!) on free will, time travel, and divine foreknowledge; and some writing I have done with non-specialists in mind.

Podcast: The Free Will Show

Do any of us really have free will? Hasn’t science disproved free will? How could we have free will if God exists and foreknows everything that we will ever do?

The Free Will Show provides a beginner-friendly introduction to the topic of free will while at the same time exposing listeners to cutting-edge developments on the topic. Hosted by a couple of philosophers, Taylor Cyr and Matt Flummer, The Free Will Show features interviews with guests on a diverse array of issues relating to free will, including issues in science and theology.

You can listen at the show’s website, thefreewillshow.com, or wherever you get your podcasts (including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts).
