"Don't Let It Go": Interview with NZ Journalist and Author David Cohen
David Cohen joins Amy for a wide-ranging discussion this week. He is a Wellington journalist and author whose work has been widely published in New Zealand and around the world. His writings have appeared in The New York Times, The Spectator, The Jerusalem Report and The Christian Science Monitor. He is the author of six books, the latest of which, Book of Cohen, had to do with the late Leonard Cohen. He describes his personal enthusiasms as poetry, philosophy and Middle Eastern cooking. The last he has parlayed into a popular newsletter called Middle Feast--which he says is currently finding an appreciative readership at a time such as this when governments have shut down the economy and told people to stay in their own kitchens.

"None of the Above": Facts Don't Care About Bureaucrats' Orders
Cuomo and Trump seem to be outdoing themselves this week, making themselves feel (and, they hope, look) important by ordering everyone around. The only problem is: reality doesn't take orders, nor do reality-oriented people. Amy & Jim discuss a number of examples and explain why during this week's show.

"None of the Above": Imagine all the People...Tested for COVID-19
Is an indefinite lockdown a good idea? Would a lockdown of any kind be justified? Amy brings in analogies to Social Security and the Ground Zero Mosque to try and convince James of her point of view.

Great Objectivist Commentary
My liberal friends often talk about listening to podcasts so I began to explore my interests in Ayn Rand and Objectivism amongst available podcasts. From the few that are available, "Don't Let it Go...Unheard" by Amy Peikoff is an excellent commentary on a variety of topics, and is by far the best among them.
Very superficial understanding of Objectivism
Pure Eloquent Rational Objective Clarity
I don't listen to many podcasts but Amy's podcast supports the right to the pursuit of your own happiness based on the philosophy of Objectivism by Ayn Rand. I think of her show as a lone life saver of truth floating on a vast ocean of myths.
