BrownCast Podcast episode 25: Christoph, center-left edgelord on social justice, Islam, and cosmopolitanism

Another BP Podcast is up. You can listen on LibsyniTunes, Spotify,  and Stitcher. Probably the easiest way to keep up the podcast since we don’t have a regular schedule is to subscribe at one of the links above.

You can also support the podcast as a patron (the primary benefit now is that you get the podcasts considerably earlier than everyone else…). Would appreciate more positive reviews.

Today I talk to Christoph, the erstwhile “Eurasian Sensation.” Long-time readers of this weblog will know that Christoph was an early contributor to this weblog. Over the past few years, he has gained prominence on Twitter as a verbal pugilist of sorts, punching Right and punching Left from the de facto center.

We talk about his own mixed-race identity, and cosmopolitan lifestyle choices and orientation. Both of us also talk about the interesting fact that we are regularly lectured about Islam by non-Muslim progressives.

Was a decent podcast, but I felt it was rather banal. Probably because I generally share Christoph’s ideological inclination (center-left in the Anglo-American context, which makes me “right by default” in a world where the Left is growing increasingly doctrinaire.)

A podcast with Aatish taseer would be interesting. His father was the assassinated Governor in Pakistan, and his mother a Modi supporting journalist. A review of his latest book

I second that. I’ve been following his writing for years, he’s an incisive thinker with a knack for highly lucid prose. He’s based in New York city these days, would be a welcome addition to the podcast
