A Two-Hour Conversation with Skeptic Michael Shermer

NOW LIVE!. Michael Shermer, founder of Skeptic Magazine, knows as much about Ayn Rand and what she stands for as anyone could. He and his daughter even appeared as extras in the movie of Atlas Shrugged! Our conversation on his Skeptic podcast lasted two hours and ranged far and wide, as all of my conversations centered on AH do (Go HERE).


“A response, and counterproposal, to Ayn Rand’s controversial worldview from a celebrated scientist–in the form of a sequel to her own novel–would be big news. And this is it.”

Kurt Johnson PhD, author of The Coming Interspiritual AgeFine LinesNabokov’s Blues; co-editor of Our Moment of Choice.

“This is an incredibly ambitious novel from one of the finest scientific minds on the planet–who just happens to be the son of the great American novelist Sloan Wilson. The goal of Atlas Hugged is nothing short of changing the world by uniting humanity and eliminating suffering. As a reimagined sequel of sorts to Ayn Rand’s famous and influential novel Atlas Shrugged, Wilson’s work is similarly full of philosophical ideas and illustrative parables. It’s didactic in the best sense of that word”
