How would a value investor like Warren Buffett look at today's crazy markets? What stocks would he buy? And what would he say about today's much-loved or much-hated companies? Featured in Financial Times, Fortune, Barron's, Business Insider, MarketWatch, and many others, Vitaliy Katsenelson's often contrarian articles on value investing, classical music, and life in general have already generated something of a cult following. You can now listen to his articles (old and new) read aloud by a ...

Aloud is about taking the beauty of written language, and speaking it out. Here I read excerpts from books, poems, or any kind of written art, so you, the listener, can be found by the truth they bring.
 
I've decided to start a podcast and YouTube channel for reading aloud texts from and about the history of socialism, short and long form, and some of my own reflections on occasion. I'm not sure there's much of an audience for this, but I'm going to try some different things and see if anything works. I might try to do some basic introductions to various topics, but that will take a lot of work and I don't have much time to spare right now. Reading ready to hand material is a much easier pla ...

Best known for his scary tales, mystery and detective stories and imaginative fantasy stories, Edgar Allan Poe was also a gifted poet. He wrote more than 70 poems and almost all of them have been widely appreciated by readers and critics alike. This collection contains some of his most famous ones, including the immortal Raven, which combines a sense of doom and nameless despair. With its ringing, alliterative and repetitive lines and strange, supernatural atmosphere, it remains one of Poe's ...
 
The Internet is a weird place! We all know this. We all accept this.

My name is Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss. I am, first and foremost, an Orthodox Jew. My primary area of focus is the teachings of Shlomo ha'Melech (King Solomon) in Mishlei (Proverbs) and Koheles (Ecclesiastes). I also consider myself to be a student of the Stoic masters: Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius. Over the past two decades I have been exploring the relationship between Judaism and Stoicism - where they overlap, where they differ, and how they complement each other. This year I started ...

Do you ever feel lost when it comes to how to read a wordless book? I’m convinced that some of the very best picture books being published today are wordless. They invite us to slow down, predict what will come next, make connections, and linger over a good story, well-told. Today I’m excited to share some of the best ones with you, as well as a si…

Andrew Kleidon talks to Myles Dannhausen Jr. about vaccines, what Ryan Heise leaves behind in Egg Harbor, and how one group of local students found a way to perform without a stage. Then they dive into Gibraltar’s plan to assess property owners for sidewalks and lights and why it has some people frustrated, again.…
 
Today's episode is a sneak peak of what's in store for next season, when we switch from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius to the Letters of Seneca. Today's reading is from the first letter of Seneca I ever read. It's been on my mind because of a conversation I had with a student about what it means to be a reader - something that Seneca and I have…
 
You will soon die and are not yet simple, untroubled, void of suspicion that anything from outside can hurt you, nor kindly disposed towards all, nor counting wisdom to consist only in just action. ---------- Epictetus - Discourses 3:10 (conclusion) Yirmiyahu 22:16 “He judged the case of the poor and the destitute, and then it was good. Is this not…
 
The rise of developers -- as buyers, as influencers, as a creative class -- is a direct result of "software eating the world", and of key shifts in IT from on-prem to cloud & SaaS to the API economy, where application programming interfaces are essentially building blocks for innovation. Developers therefore not only play an outsized role in high-p…
 
I recorded this episode yesterday morning, in anticipation of getting the first dose of my COVID-19 vaccine. It's a few minutes longer than the usual episode, but that's because it covers three texts: one from Marcus Aurelius, one from Epictetus, and one from Seneca. ---------- The sources cited in today's episode are too long to cite in their enti…
 
WOODS IN WINTER by HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW When winter winds are piercing chill, And through the hawthorn blows the gale, With solemn feet I tread the hill, That overbrows the lonely vale. Oe’r the bare upland, and away Through the long reach of desert woods, The embracing sunbeams chastely play, And gladden these deep solitudes. Where, twisted …
 
2020 will go into our memory banks as a very painful year. Stoicism, particularly the stoic practice of negative visualization, helped Vitaliy put 2020 into a broader historical context, and compare what happened, which was bad, to what could have happened. In this podcast, Vitaliy walks you through how Stoicism helped him put a challenging year in…
 
Contemplate continually all things coming to pass by change, and accustom yourself to think that the nature of the universe loves nothing so much as to change what is and to create new things in their likeness. For everything that exists is, in a way, the seed of what will come out of it, whereas you imagine seeds to be only those which are cast in…

Here’s part twenty-seven of my new reading of my novel Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town (you can follow all the installments, as well as the reading I did in 2008/9, here). This is easily the weirdest novel I ever wrote. Gene Wolfe (RIP) gave me an amazing quote for it: “Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town is a glorious book, but t…

All is ephemeral, both what remembers and what is remembered. ---------- Koheles 1:11 There is no memory of the earlier generations, and also the later generations that will be, there will not be a memory of them with those that will come later [yet].

Some reflections on this project, and the relationship between socialism and intellectual inquiry more generally."The spirit which has awakened, pervades, and moves the multitude, is that of intellectual inquiry.

All about section 230 of the Communications Decency Act -- in what Wired senior writer (and host of the Get Wired podcast) described as "one of the clearest-but-still-nuanced explainers I've heard - worth listening to".

Epictetus – Enchiridion Chapter 17 Remember that you are an actor in a play of such a kind as the playwright chooses: short, if he wants it short, long if he wants it long. If he wants you to play the part of a beggar, play even this part well; and so also for the parts of a disabled person, an administrator, or a private individual. For this is yo…

Words familiar in olden times are now archaisms; so also the names of those whose praises were hymned in bygone days are now in a sense archaisms; Camillus, Caeso, Volesus, Dentatus; a little after, Scipio too and Cato; then also Augustus, then also Hadrian and Antoninus. For all things quickly fade and turn to fable, and quickly, too, utter oblivi…
 
THE CROSS OF SNOW by HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW In the long, sleepless watches of the night, A gentle face—the face of one long dead— Looks at me from the wall, where round its head The night-lamp casts a halo of pale light.

Call to mind by way of example the time of Vespasian: you will see everything the same: men marrying, bringing up children, falling ill, dying, fighting, feasting, trading, farming, flattering, asserting themselves, suspecting, plotting, praying for another's death, murmuring at the present, lusting, heaping up riches, setting their heart on office…

Here is a philosopher without a tunic, another without a book, another here half-naked. “I have no bread,” he says, “and still I abide by reason.” And I do not get the means of living out of my learning, and I abide by my reason. ---------- Epictetus – Enchiridion 23 If at any time it should happen that you turn to external things with the aim of p…
