The Yaron Brook Show premiered on Wednesday. Broadcast on the BlogTalkRadio network, the show covers news, culture, and politics from the perspective of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism. Following the shooting in Paris, the first episode of the show was a special edition focusing on freedom of speech. The description of that episode:
The slaughter of journalists at Charlie Hebdo in Paris is part of a longstanding war against the freedom of speech. Before that horrific incident, there was a long line of threats and attacks. Recall the intimidation of Sony Pictures over The Interview; the 2011 firebombing of Charlie Hebdo; the deadly global riots in 2006 over cartoons of Mohammad in a Danish newspaper; Iran's death decree in 1989 against novelist Salman Rushdie. The list goes on. A climate of fear and self-censorship has set in. TV networks have removed shows from the air. Publishers have scrapped plans to release new books. Colleges have dis-invited commencement speakers like Ayaan Hirsi, because of their views.
The Yaron Brook Show airs on Mondays, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Pacific. You can listen to the show live online and call in with questions. After broadcast, a recording of the show is available on-demand. Listen to the first episode here:
Coming up on Monday, Jan. 12, the scheduled topic is a further exploration of the freedom of speech and how it should be safeguarded. So make sure to tune in!
