Interview: vers la Lune

I was recently interviewed on the vers la Lune podcast.

Listen below:

This episode features Meta Nomad, easily one of the most prolific writers in the accelerationist space. Don’t let his modesty fool you, he’s brilliant and someone whose writings you’re going to want to dive into after listening to this conversation. We covered the pandemic that is coronavirus, we spoke about the practice of “exiting” modernity; as well as. tackled conversations about Christianity and the occult and how non-materialist viewpoints allow for you to peak out from the shroud of liberalism. Enjoy!

Interview: The Fox Den: A Fox Exits Modernity

I was recently on the Fox Den podcast with Jeremy Fox, listen below:

“Imagine a traveler, exiting the bustling and claustrophobic mire of a cityscape, journeying into nature, accompanied by a telepathic fox companion. The two communicate earnestly about the exponential acceleration of mindless consumption and the very commodification of identity. This is as close a description as suffices, for this eventful podcast between Meta-Nomad, host of the philosophy podcast Hermitix, and yours truly. We first address his poignant essay “Exiting Modernity,” a rallying cry for a life of reflection: https://www.meta-nomad.net/exiting-modernity/ Eavesdrop on our conversation about the decline of mindful connection, and what it means to be a Neo-Ascetic. Allow the Nomad’s wisdom to remind you that mindfulness is an ongoing choice. In a world of mindless distractions, personal serenity becomes the most radical form of rebellion. ” (Blurb)

Hermitix is arriving…

 

Hermitix is a completely new podcast focusing on one-on-one interviews relating to fringe philosophy, obscure theory, esotericism, underappreciated thinkers and movements, and that which historically finds itself ‘outside’ the academic canon.

The aim of the podcast is to allow autodidactic thinkers, amateur philosophers and the generally curious an insight into the work of thinkers and movements who/which are often impenetrable to those outside of the academy. With the discussions at Hermitix aiming to be informal idea barrages which attempt to retain the excitement of fringe theory without falling into the structural ‘niche’ pitfalls of the academy.

The episodes will be between 1-2 hours and will be made available via multiple hosting sites. It will be hosted by me, Meta-Nomad.

Hermitix is currently in the process of recording its very first episodes and as such has little to no physical or virtual existence as of this moment. This is largely due to the fact various podcasting
catalogs have content requirements with regards to popularity, that is, beginning a new podcast with only one episode is bad form. And so, Hermitix wishes not to exist until it can safely to hit the ground running with a handful of episodes ready. Which will be in the next 2 weeks.

The range of speakers Hermitix intends to interview includes, but isn’t limited to: PHd students, authors, philosophers, theorists and prominent bloggers.

At the time of its launch Hermitix’s hub will be at: www.hermitix.net

Updates and latest episodes will be posted here also.
