This second episode of the Philosophy Bakes Bread radio show and podcast features an interview with Dr. Bill Myers of the Birmingham Southern College in Birmingham, AL, on the topic of the “Ethics of Dentistry.” It has surprisingly little to do with stealing gold teeth.

- In this episode, we referred to two books that are great for people who want to learn more philosophy and just want fun introductions that don’t require much background. One mentioned was Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar, by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein. The same authors also published Aristotle and an Aardvark Go to Washington. The other book mentioned on the show was Sophie’s World, by Jostein Gaarder and translated by Paulette Moller.
