EXTREMELY IMPORTANT NOTE:
Somehow in three edits, I didn’t catch the fact that I said the word “October” when I meant the word “Boy.” U2 fans will understand, if not forgive.
Also available on Spotify, iTunes, and pretty much everywhere pods are cast! (just search for "15 minutes jamie berger).
A "Meet Your Heroes" episode
Matthew Silverstein is a Professor of Philosophy at NYU Abu Dabi.
But to me (Jamie, here), He's Mattie, a friend who 20-years ago was a callow youth wandering Dublin hoping to run into his idols, the members of the band U2. Click play to find out what happened!
Professor Silverstein is interested in the foundations of ethics — that is, in the question of what, if anything, we can say on behalf of our most basic ethical commitments. He is also interested in the Chicago Cubs, opera, classical music, and Roger Federer. We talk about all that, but mostly he tells his U2-fan Odyssey!
