New Ideal - Reason | Individualism | Capitalism

‘Hey Google, play the podcast New Ideal . . . ’

Tearing down Civil War monuments. “Cancel culture.” Protests in the streets. The legality of pandemic lockdowns. These are just some of the pressing issues we’ve tackled on our weekly podcast series, featuring writers and editors of New Ideal. The series helps you gain clarity on the issues shaping our world — from the perspective of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism.

Listen on demand by subscribing to the podcast, which now also features a curated selection of content from the pages of New Ideal. For instance, you can listen to an audio version of Onkar Ghate’s in-depth paper “A Pro-Freedom Approach to Infectious Diseases.” And you’ll also find Aaron Smith reading aloud his essay “The False Promise of Stoicism,” which caused significant buzz.  

Listen anywhere. Not only on your smartphone — using Google Podcasts or Apple Podcasts — but now also on a smart speaker, such as Amazon’s Echo and Google Home.

To hear the latest episode on an Amazon device, for example, just say, “Alexa, play the podcast New Ideal, from the Ayn Rand Institute.” (For more on how to set up your smart speaker, here are tips for Alexa- and Google-powered devices.)
