Episode 27 – What are we for? part I

While most of this episode (time wise) ends up being about ITS and whether we are “for or against” it the concept of this episode, and this series of closing episodes at the end of season 1, is to think about what we are for. Better stated, in this episode Aragorn! attempts to talk about […]

Episode 26 – Science

This episode is interesting because it fleshes out an interesting tension. We discuss science as a “monster of reified reality” as a juxtoposition of what seems to be a series of primitivist, and post-primitivist, assertions attempting to redefine & reclaim science (probably small s). This should lead to a series of conversations about the consequence […]

Episode 25 – What remains of the Left?

This episode continues our conversation about the left, what we draw from it but mostly focuses on the French group the Situationist International (the SI). We also discuss (pre) the informal LBC tour and the future of the Brilliant podcast. We start out with a long discussion about emails we received. Lots of good gossip, […]

Episode 24 – The (Libertarian) Right pt II

Episode 23 – The Right

In our race to the end (episode 29) we had a bunch of topics we wanted to discuss. One of them was the libertarian right. This is that episode. This episode was recorded prior to our knowledge of ARR’s book where he accuses us of being part of the right so listen to it in […]

Episode 21 – Why Are We so Weak?

Following up on episode 20 we turned directly to this article by Frere Dupont and the question of why is this thing (what we call anarchism) so precious, rich, and fulfilling for us not so much for others, for everyone, and what drive people away. In my opinion this is an impossibly difficult question and […]

Episode Twenty – Revolution II

We spend most of this episode discussing a provocative email that opens questions about strategy & revolution, the US & the world. We were going to talk about Dupont but instead we engage with great correspondence. Tick Tock News items 3:30 IGD kickstarts a new publication. We discuss the site as charitably as possible. (BTW […]

Episode Nineteen – Desert III

In Episode 19, recorded January 15th, we have a wide-ranging, rather bleakly-toned conversation that begins with a brief examination of how the Millennial Generation seems dramatically depleted of life (domesticated?) and what that may mean for the prospects of an anarchist future – at least they may not breed as much. A! and B then […]
