“Leonard Peikoff's podcast meets Fox's Red Eye meets chat with friends over coffee.
The title of this show is a reference to an essay written by Ayn Rand entitled Don't Let It Go. To quote from that essay:
"Is there enough of the American sense of life left in people- under the constant pressure of the cultural-political efforts to obliterate it? It is impossible to tell. But those of us who hold it, must fight for it. We have no alternative: we cannot surrender this country to a zero- to men whose battle cry is mindlessness."
The hostess Amy Peikoff and her often times cohost Bosch Fawstin are excellect fighters in this regard. Amy's analyses of the current cultural and political events are spot on, intelligent, honest, and insightful. Unlike the petty bickering and weak arguments seen in mainstream cultural-political opinion outlets, Amy always gets down to the real meat and potatoes of each topic. This is the kind of real discussion we wish we had more of.
The general attitude of the show is similar to a casual discussion with friends over coffee about the world, and often leans towards a rant about that world, as such discussions will sometimes do.
I tune in every Sunday to listen, and I recommend either subscribing to the podcast via iTunes, or catching up in the archives here and joining us on Sundays.
As a side note I'll say this: Bosch's side comments, although helpful and sometimes humorous, are often an interruption to an otherwise great analysis. I can tell Amy wants to (and actually has done before) cut him off or tell him to pipe down because he's interrupted her quote or train of thought. Other than that, I wish they would go back to the two hour shows!”
