The Unz Review • An Alternative Media Selection$
A Collection of Interesting, Important, and Controversial Perspectives Largely Excluded from the American Mainstream Media

Audio Files and Podcasts

Since growing numbers of individuals prefer receiving their content in non-written form, I’ve recently produced individual audio file versions in mp3 format of most of my articles from the last three decades, including all the longer and more substantial ones, totaling around 500,000 words.

Since so much of the material is complex, highly specialized, and often quite controversial, recruiting someone else to read the texts would have probably been very difficult, and would anyway have required a great deal of time to supervise, review, and correct the output, so the least bad option was to do the work myself. Therefore, the result was not quite fully professional quality, but probably “good enough.”

The mp3 audio file links are provided with the Speaker icon, including the approximate length, and are grouped by general topic-area. They’re also directly available at the top of each of the individual article pages.

All these clips are also available on SoundCloud, and forthcoming articles containing audio clips will be available in a special RSS Feed.

Above these audio files, I’m also including links to several of my interview podcasts from the last few years.
