Ep. 11 | A Book on Medievalism
I recently read the book "Angels in the Architecture" by Douglas Jones and Douglas Wilson. This book was, by all means, earth-shaking. I usually do not plan to devote entire podcast episodes to a single book, but this one deserves it. In this episode, I talk about the book, some of the concepts therein, and the ramifications that it would have if we took Medievalism seriously.    Buy this book now: here.

Ep. 10 | The Stunning Significance of Michelangelo's Pieta
Michelangelo's Pieta is an amazing work of art. Aside from the sheer artistic quality of the work, the Pieta is a symbol of the existence of sacrifice, suffering, and meaning; it is the Gospel of Christ and the relationship of God to man, the beacon of God's love. We look at all these things and more in this episode.

Ep. 9 | What's Wrong with Ayn Rand
Ayn Rand is one of the biggest influences in modern Philosophy. Working off the back of Atheism and the "death of God," Rand created a philosophy to live in the world. With the virtue of selfishness, she believed that the world would be a better place. However, Rand's literature is cheap, her ideas are generic, and her philosophy falls apart under pressure. In this episode, we look at why this is the case and also some of the good things about Rand.  Make sure to leave a review and subscribe!

Ep. 8 | What is Systemic Racism?
When someone says your racist, what do they mean? It is foolish to be calling everyone and everything racist. I explain why in this video. I also talk about the problems in believing in "Systemic Racism" and how doing so is believing in a communist ideology set to destroy all of Western thought.

Ep. 2 | Part 1: What is a meaningful life? — Nihilism and Family
I received a question recently: "Can I only have a meaningful life if I am making someone else's life better?" This, of course, quickly turns into the question: "What is a meaningful life?" I would say that this question sums up all of the intellectual inquiry. This is part 1 of a multiple part series on this question.  Make sure to leave a review and subscribe!

Ep. 1 | How Terrible were the Capitol Riots?
NOTE: I have some verbal errors and inconsistencies in this video, forgive those in advance.    What happened on January 6, 2021, was absolutely disgusting. Some thoughts on what happened.    ALSO, if it was not clear, Trump can say there would be an orderly transition of power and also that the election should be litigated.    Make sure to leave a review and subscribe!
