|"The Thomas Jefferson Hour" available online|
Supporters and listeners of WHY? and the Institute for Philosophy in Public Life, may be interested in the latest episode of The Thomas Jefferson Hour featuring a conversation between Jefferson (portrayed by nationally acclaimed humanities scholar and award winning first person interpreter of Thomas Jefferson) Clay Jenkinson and Adam Smith (portrayed by UND Associate Professor of Philosophy & Religion, Jack Weinstein).
The Thomas Jefferson Hour is a weekly radio program that “is dedicated to the search for truth in the tradition of Thomas Jefferson.” The goal of the program is to bring out the truth of a given situation and help the audience think through the process.
The major strength of the program, according to the web site, is the “ability to help people strip through the advertised message and look for the truth of the situation. The truth may be painful and self-revealing, but it is always uplifting to the spirit.”
