We are the ethics podcast for college students at UNC who are ethically curious.
Interested in podcasting, philosophy and ethics?
So are we!
We invite academics, business leaders, and passionate students to discuss a wide variety of topics. Large or small, questions involving philosophy, politics, and economics guide our everyday lives, and we aim to explore them all.
From conversations about what is happening around campus to debates on the ethics of lying to children about Santa. We are here to answer your questions and provide insight into some of UNC's greatest minds!

later in life as either an international arbitrator or
a corporate ethicist. Campbell has four brothers, so she is accustomed to ethically arbitrating four different (and usually loud) opinions and finding
good compromise. When she's not studying—or herding brothers—she enjoys wake-surfing, writing, and reading trashy romance novels :)
