Thomas Hobbes, the 'Beast of Malmesbury', his reputation and legacy, is the subject of a 10-minute podcast introduced by Julian Baggini of the Philosophers' Magazine...it includes brief contributions from five philosophers who have contributed to the Philosophy Bites podcast that I make with David Edmonds: Quentin Skinner (listen to my podcast interview with him on Hobbes on the state), Anthony Kenny (listen to him talking about his history of philosophy), Mary Warnock (listen to my interview with her about philosophy and public life) Jonathan Rée (listen to his views on philosophy as an art) and John Cottingham (listen to John Cottingham on the meaning of life).
It's nice that some other philosophers having a go at podcasting.

Machiavelli's book The Prince seems relevant to almost every political age. A recent article in The New Yorker brings out some of the insights into the present reading Machiavelli today can offer.
Quentin Skinner's podcast on The Prince on Philosophy Bites sets the book in its original context.
