I have been meaning to mention here that I also contribute to a great blog called Rationally Speaking.
Rationally Speaking is a blog maintained by Prof. Massimo Pigliucci, a philosopher at the City University of New York. The blog reflects the Enlightenment figure Marquis de Condorcet’s idea of what a public intellectual (yes, we know, that’s such a bad word) ought to be: someone who devotes himself to “the tracking down of prejudices in the hiding places where priests, the schools, the government, and all long-established institutions had gathered and protected them.” You’re welcome.
The web site features podcasts and essays on a range of topics, including philosophy, science, politics, and religion.
