The Last Superstition radio podcast

The podcast of my interview on The Jeff Whitaker Show from last Thursday is now available for your listening pleasure. My segment begins a little more than halfway through the show. Jeff slightly mispronounces my name. It's not "Fess-er" but "Fay-zer," like the phasers of Star Trek fame. (As a student once put it on a kind end-of-semester evaluation: "Set your phaser to fun!" Been trying to live up to that ever since.)

Cool. I'll set my phaser to fun and listen to it later!

Aww ya beat me to it. I was thinking it was pronounced "Fess-er."

Phaser, Feser, Fesser, whatever--I'm hooked.

Hello Dr. Feser,

Just listened to the show, I was actually surprised by one thing you said and, as usual, have a disagreement about another thing.

The thing that surprised me was the claim that a first cause must be a sustaining force for existence. This is a different view of cause and effect, which are usually distinct.

The second thing was a valid point on the emotional reasons atheists would wish to deny the existence of God. I agree that atheists could have those motives, I just don't see the reward system for atheists as comparable to what theists claim for themselves.

So Prof. Feser is every bit as fluent a radio performer as Lydia!

Well done.

One hopes that some of Jeff Whitaker's regular listeners got something out of that.
