COURSE PODCAST CLIP: Social Media Dialogue Part 2: How to Think About Virtue-Signaling

Every other Wednesday we publish a new episode of the Equipped for Life Podcast, available to everyone who purchases our course, “Equipped for Life: A Fresh Approach to Conversations about Abortion.” Generally, these podcast episodes won’t be available to the general public, but we plan on releasing short clips from the episodes every Thursday, to give you a sense of what these podcasts are like.

In this episode of the Equipped for Life Course Podcast, Tim, Rachel, and I continue a multi-part series on how to be an effective pro-life advocate on social media. Tim discusses virtue-signaling. What is it? Are there different types? Are some of them actually okay? And when is it a valid or helpful accusation?

In this clip, Tim explains how the philosophy team has organized the way that we think about different kinds of virtue-signaling.
