Unregistered 155: Vin Armani




Vin Armani joined me from his new home in the paradise of Saipan to discuss the global revolutionary effects of cryptocurrency, the current “dim age” of Western civilization, his career as a celebrity sex worker, and his upcoming course for Renegade University.

Unregistered 154: Dasha Nekrasova




I had the opportunity to speak with one of my all-time favorite podcasters and public intellectuals, Dasha Nekrasova, who co-hosts with Anna Khachiyan the singular, highly popular, and often controversial Red Scare podcast. It’s rare to encounter someone like Dasha, whose analyses of art, culture, and psychology are as original and astute as her brilliant political takes.

Unregistered 153: Magnus Panvidya




On January 17 a group of self-identified “Boogaloo Boys” held an armed demonstration outside the state capitol in Lansing, Michigan. I spoke with Magnus Panvidya, a member of that group, about the surprising politics of one of the most feared and hated political movements in the United States.

Unregistered 152: Scott Horton




Every time I talk with Scott Horton, who in my opinion is the best expert on U.S. foreign relations from an antiwar perspective, I learn more than I did from taking entire university courses on the subject. I can virtually guarantee that you will possess new ways of thinking about the wars in Yemen and Syria, the Biden foreign policy team, the expansion of NATO, and U.S.-Russia relations after listening to this episode.

Unregistered 151: Cedric Johnson




Born and raised at the end of Jim Crow in Opelousas, Louisiana and now a professor of political science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Cedric Johnson joined me to discuss his origins in black institutions in the post-segregation South and his brilliantly provocative scholarly work attacking the very ideas of race, “whiteness,” “blackness” and what’s called anti-racism.

Unregistered 150: Alexander Bard



I was joined by the historian, philosopher, and rock star Alexander Bard from his home in Stockholm to discuss the ways in which academia, capitalism, traditional politics, and the nation-state are being replaced by digital freedom.

Unregistered 149: Mark Crispin Miller



I spoke with Mark Crispin Miller, a distinguished professor of media studies at New York University whose work I’ve known for decades, about the efforts by administrators at NYU and colleagues in his own department to censor, punish, and remove him. Miller’s crime has been “excessive skepticism” about such things as COVID lockdowns and the integrity of the election.

Unregistered 148: Katie Herzog



I sat down with one of the last real journalists in the United States, Katie Herzog, formerly a highly controversial staff writer at the alt-weekly newspaper The Stranger and now a less controversial but freer and highly successful podcaster as the co-host of Blocked and Reported with Jesse Singal. We discussed Trump’s claims of electoral fraud, the infantilization of Americans, whether she would vote to convict someone she knew to be innocent if it would stop the outbreak of lethal civil unrest, and the politics of removing her beloved dog’s genitalia.

Unregistered 147: Ivor Cummins



I spoke with Ivor Cummins, one of the leading critics in the world on the efficacy of lockdowns and masks in preventing the spread of COVID-19. I can now walk outside without a mask and denounce the soul-killing lockdowns and know that plenty of science is on my side.

Unregistered 146: Curtis Yarvin



The renowned blogger Curtis Yarvin, also known by his former pen name Mencius Moldbug, returned to the podcast to bend my mind on the politics of COVID, the meaning of a Biden presidency, and a host of other issues that I thought I knew well. No one makes me think harder.
