Listen to the radio program.

On this episode of Arts & Letters, we talk about ethics, thought to be derived from ethos—the Greek word for character or custom.

We also play the Ethics Bowl, a competition with  philosophy students on the University of Arkansas at Little Rock's  Ethics’ Bowl team.

And, we discuss some ethical cases whose content may range from the social to the political.

Last year, the UALR Ethics Bowl team placed 16th in the National Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition and earned 4th place at the Texas Regional Ethics Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.
