A little overrated
I think he’s done a lot for the good cause of spreading stoicism but in fairness Ryan Holiday always seems just a mediocre thinker and writer. Also he uses this platform to sell a lot of gimmicky things. I prefer Massimo Pugliuccis podcast Stoic Meditations by far.

I loved Ryan when he first hit the scene with his book “The Obstacle is the Way”. Sadly, his daily podcast of stoic philosophy has given way to a platform for him to promote his woke politics. He will soon soon learn to his dismay that very few liberals embrace stoicism. I am unsubscribing.
