Moral dilemmas | Young and Foolish Podcast - 4
Updated: May 28, 2021
This week, George Wang, Lorenzo Sierra, and Raymond Xiao talk about moral dilemmas on the young and foolish podcast. Listen to find out what they would do, and what they think is okay in scenarios such as the trolley problem, midnight death, and office theft. They also discuss the unknown information and important factors that could alter the decision making in each scenario, especially in regards to whether to save the daughter or the niece caught in a strong current. Looking at real life scenarios, they examine stories dealing with children that have severe medical conditions. Then, on a tangent, the guys talk about the ethics of cloning for the purpose of organ transplants like the in film, "The Island." Once again, they end the show with a "highlights of the week" segment.
