In this episode, I interview Mitch Horowitz, author of The Miracle Club, on the New Thought" movement in America, a form of pragmatic occultism that encompasses books like The Power of Positive Thinking, Think and Grow Rich, and The Secret. We explore the value and flaws of this popular phenomenon.
For this episode, I speak with Gary Lachman, a prolific author on occult topics and an original member of the band Blondie, about his book, Dark Star Rising, which looks at the occult aspects of Donald Trump's rise (the Kek/Pepe phenomenon) as well as the connection between the resurgent Far Right and esotericism, including the popularity of "Traditionalists" like Rene Guenon and Julius Evola.
A conversation with Brittany Kaiser, formerly an executive at the infamous Cambridge Analytica and a co-founder at Digital Asset Trade Association where she is developing legislation around Blockchain. A human rights advocate who worked for the Obama campaign, Kaiser has been outspoken about her time at Cambridge Analytica, where she saw how the use of personal data from Facebook tilted the last election. She is building a movement for people to gain control over their personal data, which Blockchain-based technology can facilitate. The discussion was recorded at The Assemblage NoMad in the Spring of 2018.
A conversation with Sterlin Lujan, communications director at Bitcoin.com and a "relational anarchist" who wants a free society without government controls.

Daniel Pinchbeck speaks with Peter Joseph, director of Zeitgeist and its sequels. Joseph's Zeitgeist was as the "red pill" for a generation, leading millions to question the basic story of their culture.

Joseph's ideas are fascinating and the book is a must read! Recorded at The Assemblage, a co-working and co-living community based in New York City
