Episode 37 - Quayshawn Spencer

On Episode 37, Nick chats with Quayshawn Spencer, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania, about growing up with the unspoken norms of social segregation in Nashville, Tennessee, the philosophical question that compelled a change in his career ambitions from biochemist to philosopher of biology, how he set out to write a book on the non-biological reality of race but then came across data that shifted his research trajectory, why he's not a biological racial antirealist nor a biological racial realist, and why philosophy of science faces an even greater challenge to diversify than STEM fields.
