Are you ready to burst your filter bubble? To hit pause on righteous anger? To answer the ultimate literary question, once and for all: do we really need books?

Hosted by Academy and Emmy Award–winning film and TV producer Emile Sherman and business leader and former human rights activist Lloyd Vogelman, Principle of Charity is a podcast which injects curiosity and generosity back into difficult conversations, bringing together two expert guests with opposing views on big social issues.

Battle it out with philosopher A.C. Grayling and art historian and content creator Mary McGillivray in this special live recording, which will put Boomers and Gen Z head-to-head. Books are dead! Long live books!
