Recent City Club Podcasts

Established to encourage new ideas and a free exchange of thought, the City Club is one of the oldest continuous free speech forums in the country, renowned for its tradition of debate and discussion.

The City Club firmly believes in the free expression of all ideas and the benefits of an open exchange. It is non-partisan and does not take positions on issues. All speakers must answer unfiltered, unrehearsed questions directly from the audience.

Each Forum is an hour long program. The program starts with a brief introduction followed by a 25-30 minute address by the speaker. Spirited, insightful and often challenging questions from the audience fill the final half hour of the program.
