Monday, November 1, 2021 - UND philosophy professor Jack Russell Weinstein is here with another episode of Philosophical Currents as we look at issues through a philosophical lens. This month we talk about the recent Dave Chappelle comedy special, The Closer. It’s sparked a lot of debate within and about the LBGTQIA+ community. Jack examines the role of comedians in tackling social justice issues. ~~~ In an excerpt from the Prairie Pulse television show we learn about a $12 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to address eating disorders. Sanford Research, NDSU, UND are among the institutions that will work on the project. Host John Harris visits with Dr. Steven Wonderlich, vice president and chief of behavioral health research for Sanford Research.
