Thought for the World

Like many people, I have a problem with the fact that BBC Radio 4's Thought for the Day excludes secular contributors. This was most recently addressed by the Corporation on the iPM programme earlier this year with a response from the controller of Radio 4 that was, frankly, weak.

Now it seems that a group has stopped complaining and taken the matter into their own hands with Thought for the World, a short daily podcast to rival Thought for the Day but which includes secular thinkers and philosophers as well as religious points of view. About the same length as TFTD, it uses the same format but has the broader framework of contributors that I would expect from the BBC's offering. Religion doesn't, after all, have a monopoly on morality.
