In Wednesday evening’s episode of Philosophy in Action Talk Radio, I’ll discuss the first presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. I’ll be silent during the debate itself, but then I’ll comment on what was said — for better or worse — during the commercial breaks. During the debate itself, we’ll have a drinking game in the text chat.

Warning: This broadcast format is experimental, and it might be a total disaster. I make no promises! Also, be sure to show up on time, as otherwise I’ll end up talking over the debate itself.
