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. Today: Who owns space?
Accented Philosophy: Who owns space?
In this episode, Ezechiel and Andy discuss the ownership of resources in space. Is space the new frontier of colonialism? Is it likely that we will explore space peacefully and in a civilised way, or are we about to repeat the mistakes of the past? And who owns the night sky? From the Tragedy of the Commons to whether we need to ditch capitalism in order to become a space-faring civilisation.
Come along for an hour-long dose of your Daily Philosophy and understand the arguments surrounding the exploration and exploitation of space.

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.
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.
Chimeras: Should we genetically cross humans with other species?
Don’t forget to tune in next Tuesday for the third episode! Thanks for taking a chance on us and enjoy the podcast!
