The relevant philosophy podcast with Dr Ezechiel Thibaud and Dr Andreas Matthias. Two philosophers with cute accents and their guests discuss the intricacies of modern life. Brought to you by daily-philosophy.com. Every Tuesday.
A new podcast: Accented Philosophy
In this first episode, Ezechiel and Andy discuss the ethics of vaccination passports. Is it morally right for the state to require citizens to vaccinate or is it discriminating against those who don’t want to get vaccinated? Come along for an hour-long dose of your daily philosophy and understand the arguments surrounding vaccination ethics.

In this podcast, with new episodes to come out every Tuesday, we will talk about philosophically relevant issues in the news, discuss philosophy with guests who do interesting things beyond the classic topics of university philosophy, and generally try to shed a bit of light on issues that are too much talked about and too little understood.
We kick off the podcast with an episode about the ethics of vaccination passports. If you’ve ever wondered whether these are a good idea or not, this episode will give you a number of interesting points to think about.
Like every new endeavour, this podcast still has a few wrinkles that need ironing out and we’d be grateful if you could tell us what you thought about it in the comments. I’d also be happy to receive your proposals for future topics.
Thanks for taking a chance on us and enjoy the podcast!
— Ezechiel and Andy (your Daily Philosophy host)
Vaccination ethics is a surprisingly rich field of philosophical inquiry, and it covers issues from all major moral theories, reaching into world politics, poverty, the role of the state and the morality of taxation and car seat belts.
