This podcast, titled "Reading Hannah Arendt with Roger Berkowitz," presents in-depth discussions centered on the works of the influential political thinker Hannah Arendt. The podcast is produced by the Hannah Arendt Center and features host Roger Berkowitz, who is the Center's Founder and Academic Director. Each episode dives into Arendt’s prominent writings, reflecting on their historical significance and contemporary relevance.

The episodes primarily focus on two of Arendt's major works: "Eichmann in Jerusalem" and "The Origins of Totalitarianism." Within the "Eichmann in Jerusalem" series, the podcast explores various facets of Adolf Eichmann’s trial for crimes against humanity, detailing legislative and moral examinations, witness testimonies, and broader discussions on the concept of the "banality of evil.” Episodes discuss different aspects such as the legal proceedings, Eichmann's personal defense, the mechanics of the Holocaust, and philosophical questions about duty and morality.

Meanwhile, segments on "The Origins of Totalitarianism" examine the rise of totalitarian regimes in the 20th century, looking at factors like antisemitism, imperialism, race-thinking, and the socio-political evolution of totalitarian movements. These discussions analyze the socio-historical contexts that gave rise to fascism and communism, emphasizing how these ideologies transformed traditional authoritarian systems.

In addition to Arendt's specific works, the podcast includes special episodes exploring themes from the Summer Virtual Reading Group on "Arendt & Friendship." These episodes delve into Arendt's views on intimate and political friendships, suggesting that meaningful human interactions and discourse form the foundation of a humane and political world.

Special episode series such as "Thinking the Plague" address current issues like the vitality of democracy and civic engagement, often through the lens of Arendt's philosophical insights. Discussions in this series include dialogues with various scholars about maintaining democratic principles in challenging times.

Overall, the podcast offers a comprehensive exploration of Hannah Arendt's critical thoughts on politics, ethics, and societal constructs, richly contextualized by Roger Berkowitz’s commentary and interviews with other intellectuals.
