  1. Trump VS. Hitchens …(at least according to his friends.)

    It’s always a treat to hear from those that knew Christopher Hitchens best. In this interview, we hear from the widow of The Hitch, Carol Blue, as well as his best (one of) friends Martin Amis. Such a refreshing change to hear a critique of the phenomena of Trump from such learned speakers.

  2. Christopher Hitchens - The Best of the Hitchslap - Part Two

    I have been working on this video for some time, and had planned to upload it today as the rendering completed just yesterday morning. When I heard the sad news of Professor Hitchens’ death late in the evening, I struggled with the thought of canceling this upload. It seemed somehow opportunistic to release a video so soon after, even if this coordination was not intentionally planned in advance. The beginning of this video especially carries a different meaning now that this news has reached all of us.

    In the end, I decided I could cope with this feeling of unease in order to share more of his thoughts, provide a moment of reflection, and pay humble tribute to the man that is an inspiration to me and so many others. If the first video was a general critique of religion, this edition is aimed at responses to common complaints non-believers hear again and again.

    Mr. Hitchens, your contributions to the struggle for liberty, equality, rationality, and freedom will never be forgotten. Your forcefulness, wit, and intelligence gave me the strength and courage to argue for these ideals in my own life. That you have done the same for so many is your great and immortal contribution to mankind.

  3. Which Had the Superior Military: First or Second World War Germany?

    This is unadorned/unfinished audio of a Dan Carlin discussion about which German military was superior, the First or the Second World War version. Unlike the approach in traditional Hardcore History releases, brevity wins out over depth in this attempt at short-form content from a traditionally long-form creator (note that it is still 50 minutes!)

  4. Christopher Hitchens - The Best of the Hitchslap

    Christopher Hitchens at his finest - some of my favorite moments by the writer who has inspired the ideals of skepticism, free inquiry, and rational thought in so many. I believe Hitchslap is now the proper term for the unflinching intellectual prowess displayed in these exchanges.
