Don’t Let It Go…Unheard #5 available for download; sign up for #6

Topics discussed: “Operation Odyssey Dawn” in Libya; Whoopi Goldberg’s “puppy mills” comment; update on the fallout from the protest of a muslim “charity” event in Yorba Linda; two philosophy of law questions — one on obtaining civil damages from a defendant who was acquitted of the crime at issue, one on privacy in an age where cellphones and portable video cameras are ubiquitous; Duran Duran as pioneers in the use of technology — again!

If you were unable to attend live and would like to hear this week’s webcast/podcast,click here.

Those who are interested in checking out the Duran Duran “Unstaged” event I discussed at the end of the podcast can check it out here. That YouTube channel also offers a ton of “classic” Duran Duran videos including the lavishly filmed (for the time) “Hungry Like the Wolf” and “Rio”. So, all you Durannies, enjoy the trip down memory lane! Oh, and here is the post where I discuss the time I met Simon LeBon and asked him about his purportedly being influenced by Ayn Rand.

Thanks to all who participated live in this week’s webcast. Use the comments portion of this post to leave comments on this week’s webcast, and to suggest topics for next week.

    Dear Amy,

    If you have time on your show, could you give your opinion on the comedian Bill Maher? He is on the left politically but he does take a more uncompromising attitude towards Islam and Islamic totalitarianism although he is still a dove. He has for instance said that certain things about western culture are not just different from Islamic culture but better and he has also said that the Muslim world needs to go through an enlightenment. Of course, he supports Obama’s initiative to reach out to the Muslim world which is bad.

    By the way, I would recommend you see Bill Maher’s Muslim fashion show on youtube, a brilliant piece of humor.

    My regards,

    Shahriar Hassani

    • That’s pretty funny! Of course we’ve seen how well all that “outreach” to the Muslim world has worked: this week I saw a picture of an effigy of Obama being stomped on by Sri Lankan Muslims.

    Hi Amy,

    Could you address the Google Book decision this week? Whatever particular angle you want to take.
