We’re looking for people to come join the show as regular contributors to the Phi Fic podcast.  The idea of the show is to discuss literature from a philosophical perspective.  I will be handling all the back-end work and costs associated with running the show, so you can focus on the readings and contributing to our discussion.  We’re hosted on the website for the Partially Examined life, and we usually get over a thousand listeners per episode, so this is a great opportunity to get your voice out there.  You’ll also have a say in deciding what we read.  If you’re interested in joining us, please contact me at the email address phificpod@gmail.com.           --Daniel
