In this episode of A Radical Podcast, we embark on a journey to reclaim the collective power of ideas over individuals. Starting with a critical analysis of a Harvard Business Review article on narcissistic leadership, we dismantle capitalist frameworks that emphasize individual achievement. Then, we pivot to global resistance movements with the theme “Follow Ideas, Not People,” highlighting the power of ideas to fuel transformative change. We wrap it all up with the latest updates from A Radical Guide to keep you in the loop.
