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.

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.

Hashing the News

There are these little programs used in information security called cryptographic hash functions. Into the function you pass an input, called a “message,” which it processes then returns an output, called a “digest.” I like to think of "Don’t Let It Go...Unheard" as a kind of hash function for weekly news, into which passes the messages of current events and out of which comes a nicely encapsulated digest, processed through the program of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism.Personally, I find it rather difficult to ingest the news in its raw form, unpalatable as it is, spouting from mouthpieces of modern pop culture. I can’t listen any more to MSNBC or CNN or Fox or radio talk shows or the networks. There’s too much yelling, too many sound bites with too little context, not to mention derision, condescension and misplaced self-assurance. It seems that even when they get the story right, they get the meaning wrong. Yet I like to stay informed about the world around me since, after all, I live in it!And so I write this review with gratitude to Amy and Bosch for creating their podcast. They take in all those messages and, in an informative way, pass on an entertaining little digest processed through a wholesome sense of life.What’s more, I enjoy the show despite the fact that my particular interests (economics, cycling, old TV and movies) do not coincide with theirs (law, privacy, comics, basketball and new TV and movies). I guess it’s the way they can tie together disparate threads into a meaningful and cogent whole that makes the show compelling.Finally, for those of you who are irritated by Bosch’s style, I think your annoyance is misplaced. True, he can cause Amy to lose her train of thought now and again with a poorly timed non sequitur, but if you listen to the few episodes when he’s not there, it’s not as lively. The pace and flow of the show is (paradoxically?) diminished. Perhaps if you think of Bosch as a color man who supplements Amy’s play-by-play -- a Cosell to her Gifford; a Madden to her Summerall -- your opinion will soften. ‘Nuff said!

If you want to hear a sassy, self righteous snob sit on her high horse then this podcast is for you. You get the impression that she enjoys the feeling of having a stick up her behind.

Great analysis of current events

Amy Peikoff does a great job analyzing current events from an Objectivist (Ayn Rand) perspective. The only negative is the frequency of interjections from cohost Bosch Fawstin, which usually detract from the flow of Amy's presentation.

Great Subjects, Great Views, Wrong Words

There is a growing number of shows reporting from the Objectivist perspective emerging onto the radio scene, and I am loving that. In fact, I am finally finding it hard to listen to all of them every week!This show is one of the ones I make sure I listen to every single week. Peikoff and Fawstin, the hosts, pick important subjects and inject a refreshing pro-reason viewpoint into the infected media scene.There is one bad thing about the show: Bosch Fawstin. The guy is not incorrect, but it seems that all he does is interrupt Peikoff or their guests to call leftist people names, like rat and scum. I mention this because I object not to his name-calling, but to the fact that it’s not objective, and his /constant/ interrupting just slows everything down, and makes for many awkward moments as Peikoff tries to stay on track after he bulldozes through (usually thoughtful) points that others on the show are trying to convey. He is a very angry person--justifiably so--but it is just not appropriate for /this/ show. I say let him do his own show! (It would probably be three hours every day of name-calling, and I would probably listen every now and then). I think Peikoff needs to find somebody who wants to express their pro-reason ideas in a more objective and philosophical way than Fawstin.
