Virtual Reality or Chinese Dark Enlightenment?
Author and theorist Bruno Maçães joins Brian Anderson to discuss the geopolitical implications of the metaverse, the philosophical underpinnings of China's rise, and the importance of writing history in real time.
Securing the Subways
Former Metro-North police captain and current Manhattan Institute adjunct fellow Dorothy Moses Schulz joins Brian Anderson to discuss a recent tragedy in the New York City subway, the likely effects of Alvin Bragg's prosecution memo, and the Eric Adams administration’s approach to rising crime.
Chicago Teachers Against Teaching
Northwestern University law professor John O. McGinnis joins Brian Anderson to discuss the Chicago Teachers Union's push for remote learning, the political geography of the Windy City, and whether Chicagoans can hope for better governance.
Can Adams Fix de Blasio’s Mess?
Tevi Troy joins Brian Anderson to discuss outgoing New York mayor Bill de Blasio's tenure, what Eric Adams might bring to the job, and the recent political trajectory of the Big Apple.
The State of the Economy
Economist Milton Ezrati joins Brian Anderson to discuss the state of the U.S. economy, the role our fiscal and monetary authorities have played in fixing it—or making it worse, and the most important long-term macroeconomic trends.
Reinventing Equal Opportunity
Charles Fain Lehman and Aaron Sibarium join Theodore Kupfer to discuss the sociology of "wokeness," the roots of the diversity, equity, and inclusion bureaucracy, and the future of identity politics in an increasingly multiracial America.
Incisive and succinct
A heavy emphasis on public policy, urban issues, and crime, but also featuring some deep dives into longer-form journalism. A sober, moderate perspective, though with clear conservative underpinnings.
One of my favorite podcasts. I learn something new every pod
Clearly in Decline
As the first podcast I ever subscribed to, it is sad to observe the intellectual rigor has clearly declined. Too many puff pieces to promote some hack’s book and mediocre interviewers and guests make the podcast dull and charmless. Not worth my time now that I have so many other podcasts I could listen to.
