Every Saturday, I post the news of the week from my primary work, Philosophy in Action, where I apply rational principles to the challenges of real life. Here's this week's update.
Upcoming Radio Shows
Philosophy in Action Radio broadcasts live over the internet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. Below are the episodes upcoming this week. I hope that you join us! More upcoming episodes can be found here: Episodes on Tap.
Note: Philosophy in Action Radio will not broadcast on Sunday, 11 August 2013 or Wednesday, 14 August 2013. I'm taking a break to compete in my first three-phase event (as an adult, that is) on my fabulous horse Lila.

4 August 2013: Q&A on Dangerous People, Objectivism and Evolution, and More
I answered these questions on Sunday's Philosophy in Action Radio:
How can I better identify dangerous or immoral people in my life? Does evolutionary theory contradict the principles of Objectivism?
