Unregistered 119: Aaron Maté



For more than three years virtually the entire class of educated and powerful Americans believed that Russia elected Donald Trump as president and Vladimir Putin controlled the politics of the United States. The journalist Aaron Maté and I discussed what we both consider to be a bizarre, infuriating and dangerous phenomenon.

Unregistered 118: Hotep Jesus



I spoke with Hotep Jesus about his experiences with racism, the state’s war on black men, how integration is “infiltration,” why he aligned with MAGA and “race realists,” black nationalism and conservatism, the myth of black homophobia, BLM and LGBTQ, and how the current antiracism movement centers and grants power to white people.

Unregistered 117: Aya Gruber



As cities were burning from rage against police brutality and mass incarceration, the author of The Feminist War on Crime explained to me that one of the principal causes of that brutality and over-incarceration was the feminist movement of the last 150 years.

Unregistered 116: Curtis Yarvin



Curtis Yarvin, also known as “Mencius Moldbug,” became nationally infamous in 2017 when it was alleged in the media that he had a “direct line” to Steve Bannon in the White House, was a leading intellectual of the “deplorables” of the rising “alt-right,” favored monarchy over democracy, and might be a racist. In this interview Curtis takes us on a wild ride through the mind of a man with a radical, unique, extraordinarily elaborate, and utterly fascinating ideology and analysis of culture, politics, and the world.

Unregistered 115: Samuel Moyn



What are human rights, where do they come from and what are we willing to do to enforce them? Are we obligated to intervene in other countries when they are violated? I talked with Yale historian Samuel Moyn about the history of this curious and often lethal idea known as human rights.

Unregistered 113: Bill Ottman



Bill Ottman, the founder of Minds.com, spoke with me about his company’s alternative to the dominant social media companies that censor lawful speech, sell our personal data to corporations and government agencies, refuse to disclose their algorithms, and enjoy massive tax breaks and government subsidies that grant them monopoly power.
