The subscription link at iTunes for The Libertarian can be found here and for Strategika here.

New episodes are currently on a holiday hiatus, but you can use the break to catch up with the archives. We’ll be back with new episodes — and new series — early in the new year. Happy listening.

    I subscribed through iTunes. I had already been listening to The Libertarian, but was unfamiliar with Strategika. Why are there multiple episodes for Strategika for each date?

    All different episodes. We tend to release three at a time, as each set of podcasts is tied to a new issue of Strategika published on the Hoover website, each of which contains pieces written by three different members of the Military History Working Group.

    I found Strategika on Stitcher, but can’t locate The Libertarian.

    It may take a few more days to show up there. Check back next week after the holiday.

    Slightly off-topic request: is there any way to restore direct links to MP3s of Uncommon Knowledge episodes on the Hoover website? I know it’s also on iTunes, but I hate using iTunes (and so does my device).

    Hooray, it’s almost as if the Hoover Institution were in the heart of Silicon Valley sometimes!

    PS, for people on Apple equipment that don’t like the itunes podcast player:

    What’s with the “information” column?

    For the latest Libertarian podcast, viewed either in Safari or iTunes, this shows up as

    “Is the media wrong to…”

    I wondered what the full information is.

    So I clicked on it. The podcast began playing without displaying anything else.

    I tried clicking on the “I” icon and got a fuller abstract of what the podcast was about. Very helpful. But nowhere did it contain the phrase “Is the media wrong to…”

    I jumped to the other player to see if I could tease out the full (shorter version of) information. Didn’t happen for me.

    I never did find the full short info. The same for all the other verbose titles in the list. There’s probably some way to view JUST a single podcast in a window without downloading it, and see it. But that would appear to defeat the purpose of these listings, which are supposed to (I think) act as quick references, a directory of many recent podcast titles. But scanning down the list I can discern the content of only perhaps 10% of them from these fragmented blurbs alone.

    There is a same problem with the titles, but being shorter I perceive that less of the title is truncated, so one is able to infer the gist of the title for most of the podcasts in that case.

    Note added later: upon revisiting I lazily ended up hovering my mouse over each. The full text appears. Duuhhh… Well, it still belies the “quick reference” aspect. But it’s better than nothing.
