The weather was A little chilly in the theater. I wore formal attire (slacks, sweater, wool coat, patent leather heels), because I was prepared for a traditional theater setting, but I felt way overdressed. This is a community theater with individual plastic chairs on risers and not a formal theatre. I didn't feel uncomfortable, but would have been fine in jeans and a sweater. Also, there was a slight draft or cool fan blowing throughout show, so I needed my coat. .

Subject was intriguing. The discussion was a bit pedantic and got mired down in terminology rather than theory.

We enjoyed the live (being taped) radio show, found the material "Extended Mind" interesting, and the guest well spoken. Ian's one minute philosopher and his 2 short stories were very engaging and witty. We've listened to the Philosophy Talk...continued
