The program “aims to increase the presence of philosophy in print, audio, and video media by training philosophers to write and produce for the public and by connecting philosophers to editors and commissioners in the media industry.” The fellowships each focus on one of three types of media: op-ed writing (workshop led by James Ryerson of The New York Times), longform journalism (workshop led by Joshua Rothman of The New Yorker), and podcasting (workshop led by Alix Spiegel of This American LifeNPRInvisibilia, Alison MacAdam of NPRAll Things Considered, and Barry Lam of Hi-Phi NationSlate).

The Marc Sanders Foundation has announced the inaugural class of fellows in its recently launched “Philosophy in the Media” program.
There were 264 applicants for the 2021-22 fellowship class. 29 were selected. Each will receive workshop training, connections to industry professionals, and a 00 honorarium. The program is funded in large part by a Public Engagement Grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
