Who is your favorite public intellectual?
I really enjoyed Sir Roger Scruton - Dr. Jordan B. Peterson dialogue. Bishop Robert Barron too... Someone like Jonathan Pagaeu for example also brings a very different and interesting perspective. There are quite a few others that I enjoy listening to but I'm not sure if they count as "public intellectuals".
Peter Sloterdijk. Roger Scruton and Camille Paglia are also worthwhile.
