I did a short interview with John Safran and Father Bob Maguire last Thursday night. This will be broadcast on Sunday Night Safran tomorrow - the show starts at 9 pm my time (eastern daylight saving time, here in Australia).
To be honest, I didn't think this was my best radio performance. I felt a bit jumpy about it and never really relaxed into the interview, let alone the program's slightly zany spirit. I tripped over Sue Blackmore's perfectly easy name, and managed to call the CFI the "committee" (rather than "center") for inquiry.
Still, I do think that I managed to make some good points in a fairly cogent way - particularly near the end when I suggested that public policy in the criminal law should be driven by John Stuart Mill's harm principle, rather than by a strategy of enforcing some kind of religious morality. That answered a line of questions about how we pick and choose between the various different things that the religious leaders and lobbies say, some of which we might even agree with.
Have a listen for yourself and see what you think. The show will then be available for ten weeks in podcast form from this coming Monday.
