    s05e48 | The Liberal Parasite – with James Lindsay and Carl Benjamin (aka Sargon of Akkad)

    s05e48 | The Liberal Parasite – with James Lindsay and Carl Benjamin (aka Sargon of Akkad)

    Carl Benjamin ( @SargonofAkkad ) and James Lindsay ( @newdiscourses ) have built their online reputations criticizing (some might say toying with) the Progressive Left. But what do they think about the context in which Progressivism arose, namely, Enlightenment Liberalism? What are its faults and successes? What would they savage and salvage from modernity, to fix our current troubles and make way for a better tomorrow?

Gnome chopper ,

Newman Newoman?

The Terry Newman podcast was one of the most interesting I’ve heard on Calmversations. She spoke informatively and gave a totally new point of view regarding Canada. Bravo to her 👏

Profoundly important

So important, so moving. A huge resource for us in these polarized, troubled times. Essential listening. Thank you Benjamin and guests

MidwestAnna ,

Great guests

This podcast has introduced me to some awesome thinkers. I’ve learned a lot. Interviewer has an ego and interrupts a lot. I often am frustrated by his arrogant interjections. I’ll keep listening but hope he improves interviewing/conversation skills.
