I just received this email and thought that it might be of interest to some of you:
I handle outreach for the "Philosophy Talk" radio show. I'm not
sure if you've heard of it, but it's been airing on KALW in San
Francisco for over six years. (show website:http://philosophytalk.org/whatsNew.htm#25Apr10
I'm writing because I thought your group members might be
interested in attending a special live taping of the show on
Sunday, April 25th in Berkeley. One of the guests will be
renowned philosopher John Searle.
Here are the event details:
