We have a natural curiosity about what happens after we die. You’ve probably imagined what it will be like—but it’s unlikely you’ve imagined an afterlife quite like the one portrayed in The Good Place. The hit tv show features imperfect humans trying desperately to gain “good points” retrospectively in the afterlife. If they don’t, they’ll face the infinite tortures of The Bad Place. At the heart of this comedy is the theme of becoming a better person, brought to us by the character of Chidi, a moral philosopher. Dr. Angela Wentz Faulconer is here to discuss with us the use of moral philosophy in The Good Place, and how the show has managed to make philosophy a hot topic.
