    A Daily Conversation About Ideas; Linking curious, engaged listeners to street-smart conversations, The Connection is energetic, edgy, outside-the-beltway American talk. The two-hour program tackles a vast range of topics. From politics to literature, religion to science, and music to medicine, The Connection approaches each with a modern edge. Note especially the summer philosophy series from 2000 in nine parts:
    Part 1: The Examined Life -- Knowing what we live and living what we know - a consideration of the examined life.
    Part 2: Justice -- How does philosophy answer the call of justice, and can there be one answer?
    Part 3: Ethics and Morality -- right and wrong, and living with the line you draw between them.
    Part 4: Love -- It's an essential human question. What's love got to do with it?
    Part 5: The God Problem -- Ever since the Greeks, philosophy has been struggling with God. The Enlightenment, and most famously Nietzsche declared God dead. But Philosophy keeps finding it necessary to re-invent him.
    Part 6: Freedom and Freewill -- If God knows all things before they come to pass, how could we be free?
    Part 7: Science -- Does science supplant religion, literature and philosophy as the path to truth?
    Part 8: The Philosophy of Mind -- Is there a ghost in the machine, a mind, a consciousness that is separate from the body, or is human thought no more than the sum of neurons and synapses doing their electro-chemical, mechanical work?
    Part 9: Living the Philosophical Life -- the "what's it all about, Alfie" questions, the relation of mind to body and of spirit to mind, the nature of truth, the imperative of justice, the scope of freedom, the mystery of language, the meaning of it all.
