An introductory course in philosophy that makes use of podcasts as an alternative of readings

Rani Lill Anjum, research assistant for philosophy at the Norwegian University of Biosciences, is trying something new this semester with her introductory course in philosophy: she has replaced all readings with podcasts.

The experiment was triggered by the “digital teaching and screen overload” of distance learning and learning during the pandemic. She notes that podcasts “can be enjoyed off-screen while you are out for a walk or just taking a break”.

Dr. Anjum uses podcasts like Philosophy Bites, History of Philosophy Without Gaps, The Panpsycast, BBC’s In Our Time and others. You can check their curriculum here. (Note: The curriculum starts with “Week 5”, but this is the beginning of the semester. The number refers to the week of the year, not the week of the semester.)

Looking for Philosophy Podcasts? Check out the large list of Philosophy podcasts that were released here a few months ago (and then updated with new additions), as well as the list that Kelly Truelove made here.
