Have any of you listened to this one?

http://www.partiallyexaminedlife.com/


This is an excellent podcast. 1.5-2 hour discussions. Lots of perspectives and analysis.


This one fits well with it because it involves shorter episodes on more applied subjects:

Do you guys know of any other good podcasts like these?

I've been listening to History of Philosophy - Without Any Gaps
http://www.historyofphilosophy.net/

It's a little on the lightweight side, but it's a good overview and helps show how the different writers & schools and were connected and interacted.

1.Prior attitude effect. Subjects who feel strongly about an issue—even when encouraged to be objective—will evaluate supportive arguments more favorably than contrary arguments.
2.Disconfirmation bias. Subjects will spend more time and cognitive resources denigrating contrary arguments than supportive arguments.
3.Confirmation bias. Subjects free to choose their information sources will seek out supportive rather than contrary sources.
4.Attitude polarization. Exposing subjects to an apparently balanced set of pro and con arguments will exaggerate their initial polarization.
5.Attitude strength effect. Subjects voicing stronger attitudes will be more prone to the above biases.
6.Sophistication effect. Politically knowledgeable subjects, because they possess greater ammunition with which to counter-argue incongruent facts and arguments, will be more prone to the above biases.

Great finds! Philosophy in Public Life is a good 'un that I listened to after one of the gents involved with it appeared on the Thomas Jefferson Hour.
