Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh discussed "Responsibility & Luck, Chapter Four" with listeners in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio. 

The purpose of a theory of moral responsibility is to limit moral judgments of persons to their voluntary doings, products, and qualities. However, moral judgments are not the only – or even the most common – judgments of people we commonly make. So what are the various kinds of judgments we make of other people? What are the distinctive purposes and demands of those judgments? What is the relationship between those judgments and a person's voluntary actions, outcomes, and traits? I answered these questions and more in this discussion of Chapter Four of my book,Responsibility & Luck: A Defense of Praise and Blame
