Episode details

For our eighth episode, we spoke with Glenn Greenwald to discuss his political work and his philosophical roots. Co-founder of The Intercept and current author of the Glenn Greenwald Substack, Glenn is someone whose opinions we want to know when it comes to important topics, as Kyle points out in the episode. That’s why we were thrilled to sit down with him for the following discussion.

We talk to Glenn about his decades of work bringing important stories to light, from his refusal to buy into the Russiagate insanity to his work with the Snowden archive. We discuss what it means to celebrate when a public figure passes away — and when that figure is Rush Limbaugh, a discussion that leads to a few different conclusions. We delve into Glenn’s advocacy around the issue of homelessness and his preference for Nietzsche among the philosophers. And we truly appreciated the opportunity to see how Glenn’s willingness to confront the status quo throughout his life has led him to his current work and enabled him to do outstanding things in that work. We hope you’ll appreciate it, too.
