In this third, "very special election" episode, I am delighted to welcome my colleague Kristoffer Ahlstrom-Vij (ahlstromvij.com). We discuss the question as to whether there is a case for restricting suffrage to those who are sufficiently competent.
We discuss Jason Brennan's paper, "The right to a competent electorate", Philosophical Quarterly, Vol. 61, No. 245 (2011), pp. 700-24.
London Philosophy Talk (firstname.lastname@example.org) is a philosophy podcast of the Department of Philosophy of Birkbeck College, University of London. It is hosted by me, Florian Steinberger (https://floriansteinberger.weebly.com/). Each episode I have an informal philosophical discussion with an expert in the field.

We also run an excellent distance learning program in philosophy in association with the University of London Worldwide: https://london.ac.uk/courses/philosophy, of which I am the Director.
