In his quest to focus on what unites us instead of what divides us, Glenn has shared the stage with some pretty remarkable and insightful individuals this year. From the future of libertarianism to the art of being unmistakable, the truth about David and Goliath to the singularity, no topic was off limits as Glenn sought to find common ground and learn from some of this nation’s most fascinating thinkers.
In November, illusionist, author, and actor Penn Jillette joined Glenn to discuss how new technology has allowed people to explore and create outside of the established system. Penn also explained the advantages of technology and why the singularity isn’t necessarily as scary as it sounds:
Earlier this year, Glenn sat down with Penn, who is an atheist, and Rabbi Daniel Lapin to debate morality, faith, and religion.
Glenn has been long been a fan of Judge Andrew Napolitano, and he joined Glenn in September to talk about the future of the libertarian movement in the United States. As the Republican and Democratic parties continue to fail the American people, Judge Napolitano explained why libertarian ideals have the power to appeal to both sides of the political spectrum. Small government, personal responsibility, and individual liberty is not partisan – its principle.
For weeks, Glenn talked to his audience about an enlightening book he had stumbled across called The Art of Being Unmistakable by Srinivas Rao. Glenn and Srinivas probably would never have crossed paths had it not been for this book. In fact, it’s probably safe to say they would not run in the same circles. But that is not a barrier to sharing and promoting similar ideals. In October, Srinivas sat down with Glenn to discuss why living an unmistakable life is as much about making things different as it is making things better.
Best selling author Malcolm Gladwell joined Glenn in November to discuss the importance of out-of-the-box thinking and “the art of taking down giants”. In Malcolm’s book, David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants, he explains there are three weapons that the “powerless” can use to overcome overwhelming odds: faith, courage, and determination. And he surprised Glenn with his insightful interpretation of the story of David and Goliath.
Plus, Malcolm shares the one question he would ask God:
