Philosophy today

Mr. Sandel's podcast is a wonderful exploration of modern day societal moral dilemmas. He examines old principles of justice and moral desert through a contemporary perspective. I never took interest in philosophy until I watched his Harvard lectures online, but I am glad I did. Mr. Sandel has helped me to form my own ideas of moral desert and justice, and has led me down a path of philosophical interest I never knew I had. A must listen for anyone interested in politics, civics, ethics, or really anything else for that matter!
