Today's guest on Write With Courage Podcast at www.thorholt.com is Independent Man. He's a skeptic, noise sifter, market watcher and dabbler and aspiring flaneur - that’s ‘a man who saunters around observing society‘ – yes I had to look that up!
Independent Man (@ on Twitter) only been producing scripts and recording political and social commentary for 10 months, yet has over 21,773 subscribers and close to 2 million channel views, despite operating in a niche topic area.
Checking out Independent Man on YouTube you will find he's made some videos on controversial topics, and we will explore why this means he doesn't use his real name (yet!)
Some examples of his Video titles:
‘ My Favourite Marxist’ (Mine too) Brendan O’Neill of SpikedOnline
‘BuzzFeed News is Cancer & Outrage Everywhere’
‘The State of Campus Free Speech’
His thoughts on freedom of speech - It's amazing to me that we live in this era when people are just so blasé about free speech... nearly everything else in western civilization is built on that free speech. On being able to disagree with someone without having to resort to violence.
Thor Holt www.thorholt.com/writer-podcast/ talks to BAFTA award-winning Human Rights Activist, Producer/Director/Writer Leslee Udwin talks pity for the World and big dreams...
"Don't ever ask 'who's going to let me write this?' Say, 'Who's going to stop me?!"
"Engage with a World that's broken - fly at 30,000 feet, above the critics."
