Philosophy in the pub

Since I caught up with The History of Philosophy without Any Gaps podcast and can only listen to one episode a week, I've started listening to another philosophy podcast, Philosophy Bites. My favorite moment so far came in a 2007 episode with Edward Craig on "What is Philosophy?" Asked whether two non-philosophers discussing philosophical issues in a pub are doing the same thing as Craig and his fellow professional philosophers, he said that they are, but then made the following comment: "Should the guy in the Dog and Duck say something that's really sharp and original, it's likely to pass in the Dog and Duck for just something else he's said."
