On Sundays I conduct a live webcast in which I discuss news and politics from the perspective of Ayn Rand’s philosophy, Objectivism. This Sunday will be the first time we try going to a 2-hour show. (Those of you who listened to last week’s show know that I was considering doing this, and I then added about 1/2 hour extra, so we could get through all the topics I had planned to discuss.) You are invited to get in on the discussion, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Pacific Time.
If you join in live, you’ll have the ability to communicate with me via text chat and also via audio either by using a USB mic connected to your computer (VoIP) or by phone. Click here to register (it’s free). If you are not able to attend live, the recorded podcast will be available later Sunday evening or Monday morning, so you can download it and listen to it at your leisure during the following week. (Note: I will divide the recorded podcast into two segments of one hour each for your convenience.)
While the list of topics is likely to change somewhat between now and Sunday, the topics I have on my mind so far are: David Letterman’s excellent response to the jihadist threat against his life; the resignation of Steve Jobs; the failure of Barack Obama’s economic policy vs. Ronald Reagan’s; the Obama administration’s response to hurricane Irene; and New York Mayor Bloomberg’s decision to have no clergy present at the 9/11 commemorative ceremony. I hope you can join me!
UPDATE: The show is over and I’m currently processing the audio files for the two hours. They will be posted soon!
I did a short Q & A on privacy and social media for the Summer 2011 issue of Chapman Magazine. You can find it here, just click on the issue with “A Roaring 20” on the cover, and use the online reader to flip to page 10. Enjoy!
