One hashtag to share Why? Radio with the world. Tweet #TryPod


This month is #TryPod month (we're a bit late in the game). Podcasters are asking listeners to post about their favorite shows while including the #Trypod hashtag. It's free and a great way to support shows like ours,...shows that have virtually no advertising budget. 

Please tweet or post about Why? Radio using the hashtag #TryPod and help introduce us to new listeners.

Include our address
@whyradioshow and we'll share it.

And don't forget to direct them to
www.whyradioshow.org
Thank you, as always, for your support.

New website shows that philosophy majors are employable and make a great living.

Visit www.PhilosophyIsAGreatMajor.com


They told you that philosophy majors don’t get jobs. They told you that you should practice asking “do you want fries with that?” They told you philosophy wasn’t about real-world skills. They were wrong.

Explore the incredible employment- and salary-statistics of philosophy degree holders at PhilosophyIsAGreatMajor.com. Share a site designed to persuade everyone that philosophy is a great, employable, and lucrative major. Submit your own story to help show the world that philosophy is not frivolous, but is a useful tool for whatever profession its students choose.

The Public Philosopher
The latest news from The Institute for Philosophy in Public Life and Why? Radio.



The Institute for Philosophy and Public Life offers a wide range of free activities and resources open to everyone with an interest in philosophy. We have modernized our web portal to make it easier to navigate, particularly on mobile phones. We have also created a new website for prospective philosophy majors to help convinced skeptical parents that philosophy degree holders are competitive in today's job market. And, as usual, we offer both in-person and radio-based opportunities for people to come together and explore philosophy in a supportive and non-adversarial environment.
