Podcast: Ryan Holiday On Courage

Plus, upcoming show guests

Hello everyone - if you’re a paying subscriber to The Transom, you should be getting the scripts of my Fox News Primetime monologues all this week - tonight’s my last night, so I hope you’ll tune in at 7 PM Eastern. For public subscribers, I’ll be sending out emails like this one regularly, with my work in other venues as well as articles of interest.

My weekly podcast with Fox News is here. I hope you’ll subscribe and listen to the latest edition with author and stoic philosopher Ryan Holiday, who was one of my guests on-air last night. We discussed his latest book, Courage Is Calling, and debated how much courage is defined by the cause it supports. You can also check out prior episodes with Scott Adams, Miranda Devine, Elbridge Colby and more.

In the coming weeks, our guests include Victor Davis Hanson, John McWhorter, and Joe Lieberman - all of whom have new and interesting books. If you have questions for them, I’m eager to hear suggestions.

Next week I’ll resume the daily newsletter that includes some aggregation, albeit not as much as under the old model. Until then, here are some of the articles and Substack newsletters I’m reading as well as a new cooking video from Chris Bedford.

The Case For Vaccine Passports Just Keeps Getting Worse
I should start by repeating that there is no case for vaccine passports. They’re a moral and ethical disaster, functionally useless and discriminatory. Even entertaining them as a legitimate option is a disservice to science and what America and the rest of the free world used to stand for…
