[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnzpJMsW5f4&w=420&h=315] Debate about Ayn Rand, Objectivist ethics, Raymond Carver, and more.

“It’s God… and then Ayn Rand.”

Members of the Austin Writing Workshop conduct a roundtable, free-form discussion of literary and philosophical topics.

The first part of the podcast covers the movie “As Good as It Gets” starring Helen Hunt, Jack Nicholson, and Greg Kinnear.

The second part of the podcast covers the essay “The Objectivist Ethics” by Ayn Rand. (Around the 25:00 mark in the video above.)

The third part covers Raymond Carver’s “Fat,” literary techniques (including irony), the movie “Edward Scissorhands,” and other arty topics.

People are chomping on food and there are weird background noises the whole time, too, so if that bugs you (as much as it does me) then skip this one.
