On my seventh appearance on After Dark with Rob and Andrew, I share how I’ve been diving into conservative history, thought, philosophy, and community. Both hosts have been on my podcast and I meet Rob periodically in person in Manhattan, where he lives too.

About the hosts:

Rob is the founder of The Multicultural Conservative Foundation, whose mission is to promote the political diversity of conservatism through social media. He has been interviewed by many independent news organizations regarding his views on black conservatism. In addition to writing and blogging, he is the author of a self-help book, “That Job Just Isn’t Into You: Starting Over When It’s Over.” Andrew is a social media pundit, writer, and podcast host. He believes in traditional Conservative values, including the right to free speech, America First, limited government, and the Bible.

I’d love your thoughts, readers. Here’s the episode (plus the full site: How pollution destroys life, liberty, and property, and all my appearances on After Dark.):

The show notes:

Josh Spodek can be described by many titles. He is an astrophysicist, environmentalist, author, podcast host, and teacher.

He recently joined us to share with them his latest venture, which lately includes reading conservative literature. The author, who is writing a new book, does not back away from any subject, including conservatism.

After taking a class on conservatism, he shared with the hosts that he might be more of a conservative than “Conservatives.” On its face, that may seem like a ludicrous statement coming from a guy who seems to lean left politically.

However, Spodek explains his somewhat new-found conservatism in an in-depth and interesting conversation that ties life, liberty, and property—all mainstays of conservative ideology—to pollution.

Additionally, the sixth team guest discusses how politics and the current wars in the Middle East have an impact on polluting the environment.

This conversation is one for the books. Who would have thought a person from Spodek’s background would share ideas that most liberals would say he couldn’t? It just goes to show that there are ideas we can all embrace and appreciate when we stop and listen to what the other person has to say.

Joshua Spodek, Ph.D. MBA is a three-time TEDx speaker, #1 bestselling author of Initiative and Leadership Step by Step, host of the award-winning This Sustainable Life podcast, and professor at NYU. He holds a Ph.D. in astrophysics and an MBA from Columbia, where he studied under a Nobel Laureate and helped launch a satellite. He is one of the founders of an invention that showed animated images to subway riders between stations. He has taught and coached leadership and entrepreneurship at NYU and Columbia Business School. He has spoken at Harvard, Princeton, West Point, Google, IBM, The New York Academy of Science, and the Children’s Aid Society. He has appeared on TV and in the NY Times and Wall Street Journal to discuss Sustainable Life and leadership. He was called the “best and brightest” in Esquire’s Genius issue, “astrophysicist turned new media whiz” by NBC, and “rocket scientist” by Forbes.

Spodek has swum across the Hudson River twice, has done burpees daily since 2011 (165,000 and counting), takes 16 months to produce one load of garbage, and hasn’t flown (by choice) since March 2016.
