Inquisitive Minds Podcast Critical Thinking on History, Religion, Politics and Culture

The month of August has been quite violent as people have witnessed the live killing of two reporters in the US, the murder of two family members in an Ikea store in Sweden, and a terrorist attack on a train between Paris and Amsterdam. This forces us to reflect on important issues such as immigration, religious violence, radicalization, culture, politics, economics, security, public policy, education and political correctness. We discuss these various events and their implications in this week's episode of the Inquisitive Minds Podcast.

After interviewing Dr. Hector Avalos during our last two episodes of the Inquisitive Minds Podcast, we decided to do a short recap on some of the topics covered at our recent Religion and Violence conference, held at Concordia (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) last June. In this episode, André Gagné, Calogero A. Miceli and Costa Babalis briefly discuss the content of their papers and the purpose for hosting such a conference. Please note that an edited volume of the papers is currently in the works. Listeners will be informed in the coming weeks when the publication will be available for purchase.

For our first podcast of 2015, we decided to have a special episode on the Paris shootings which happened on Wednesday, January 7th. The offices of the satirical newspaper "Le Charlie Hebdo" was attacked by terrorists who managed to kill 12 people and injure 11 more. In solidarity with the people of France, this podcast is entitled "I am Charlie"; the slogan and symbol of freedom of expression and of the press. As we start this new year, we also welcome Costa Babalis as a third co-host. Please note that this podcast is an early special edition. Our second episode (#40) will run on January 19th.
