The Pat Flynn Show

Oct 5, 2018

Pat Flynn interviews Professor Michael Rectenwald of New York University, who has recently been making headlines for speaking out against the radical, postmodernist views infesting academia--views that he himself once held(!)--and the subsequent attacks he's faced, both personal and professional, for doing so.

This interview should be interesting for anybody who's ever wondered about the history of postmodern philosophy--how it started, and how it eventually evolved into many of the radical and intolerant ideas that academia, and our world, are confronted with today.
