NEW YORK, NY – The Manhattan Institute (MI) is pleased to announce a new partnership with senior fellow Glenn Loury, starting on August 1 as Loury becomes a John A. Paulson Fellow and brings his popular podcast, The Glenn Show, to the Institute.
Loury, who joined the Institute as a senior fellow in 2020 and writes for City Journal, is the Merton P. Stoltz Professor of Economics at Brown University and one of the 2022 recipients of the Bradley Prize.
The Glenn Show, which was launched by Loury 14 years ago, features substantive commentary on matters of race, culture, and current events – weekly. Through his sustained critique of identity politics and the growing influence of illiberal race essentialism, Loury has become a go-to national voice on race and politics.
With this new partnership, the Institute and Loury will collaborate on production and marketing of the show—and will build on its success to bring Loury’s voice to the broadest possible audience and amplify his public intellectual footprint. The partnership also marks an expansion of the Institute’s slate of podcasts.
“Glenn is one of America’s premier public intellectuals,” said Reihan Salam, president of the Manhattan Institute. “Drawing on his scholarly expertise and rich and varied life experience, he has made The Glenn Show an indispensable source for thoughtful conversations about culture, politics, and challenges involved in building a successful multiethnic democracy. We are honored to work with him, and excited about bringing The Glenn Show to new audiences.”
“It has been an honor and a pleasure being a part of MI’s community of scholars, journalists, and intellectuals over the last few years. I’m thrilled to build on that partnership through this new and exciting fellowship,” added Loury. “The Glenn Show has been near and dear to my heart for over a decade. Through this new collaboration with the Manhattan Institute, it is extremely gratifying to have such an accomplished team helping me to shepherd my labor of love.”
