This podcast premieres the first audio episode of Stand Alone (2016) and the 11th issue in the series. Stand Alone is mixed medium and format journal produced at irregular intervals. Our podcast, while sporadic, will be divided into two types.

This episode features readings from the work of three figures associated with the history of egoism: Benjamin DeCasseres, Sidney E. Parker, Voltairine de Cleyre.

Though de Cleyre was not an egoist per se, she was at one point an individualist and through her life struggled between individualism and altruism, trying to reconcile the two. Her writing and life has influenced other egoists and individualist anarchists.
