Finally the podcast !!!!!!!!!!
I have been following Heterodox Academy since its beginning and watch many of Prof Haidt's video's. So this podcast was missing! It is a much need addition to counter the regressive Left insanity at North American universities. Also a resource which introduces based academics. Thank You.
HA is providing a great service
Heterodox Academy has done a lot to broaden my horizons and introduce me to entire areas of academic research that were totally off my radar. Don't think of them as the "conservative" alternative to the academic Left; their members are all over the political spectrum, including lots of niches that don't really have a name.
The podcast consistently highlights scholars whose work is ignored or devalued because it doesn't fit lend itself to neat political narratives. I especially enjoyed their episode with Alice Dreger on how corporate-style branding of universities threatens academic freedom.
However, the production values are not great and the interviewer is pretty dry. It's still a fairly new podcast so I hope it'll eventually be a little more polished.
I love this organization and everything that it stands for. You guys do fantastic work! I love that you have a podcast now. Please keep it up – it makes such a difference in the world!
