The Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (Bioethics Commission) has produced a podcast series, Ethically Sound, based on the 10 reports it produced during its tenure. Each podcast focuses on an ethical challenge the Bioethics Commission addressed in a specific report, and illustrates how its work influenced how these challenges were handled. To facilitate classroom or seminar discussion of the Ethically Sound series, we developed a set of questions for each podcast to spark discussion. These questions can be used in a variety of educational settings and learning platforms, and adapted for many learning levels.
All of the Bioethics Commission’s educational materials can be downloaded at www.bioethics.gov/education. The Ethically Sound cast series is available at www.bioethics.gov/podcasts.
