Philosophy Casting Call Podcast s02e05: Gatekeeping, Class, and Applied Epistemology w/Louise Durham

In this episode, Élaina interviews Louise Durham, a PhD student in philosophy at the University of Aberdeen. Louise talks about the three “lightbulb moments” that motivated her decision to pursue academic philosophy. This episode is for all those who have been told to give up and who kept going mostly out of spite. It’s also for everyone who ever failed a logic class. You’re in good company.
