PODCAST: Sohrab Ahmari on “The Unbroken Thread,” Part 1

The James Wilson Podcast features noted author and New York Post opinion editor Sohrab Ahmari on his book on the failings of modernity to provide mass satisfaction in the West.


Author and New York Post opinion editor Sohrab Ahmari joined JWI Deputy Director Garrett Snedeker and intern Guy Denton for a two-part discussion of his new book, The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos. In Part I, we discuss Ahmari’s inspiration for writing the book, the failings of modernity to provide mass satisfaction in the West, traditional religious communities, filial piety, and the Sexual Revolution.
