Ep 35 - Interview w/ James Jenneman of the blackbird podcast

Let's get deep

Welcome to the show

Sometimes it takes a little bit of time before you understand somebody enough to have the conversation you really want to have. Big thanks to James Jenneman of the Blackbird Podcast for coming on to do a marathon show with me!

Real quick - go to and catch me on your favorite social media outlet!

We start by talking about libertarianism, and end up discussing integral theory, religion, gender, and the Death of God (according to Nietzsche). What more can you ask for in a conversation? How about some chapter markers so you know what you’re getting into - I got you covered there.

To the people still learning long form podcasting my advice is this: throw this conversation on the next time you’re driving somewhere, cleaning your house, or doing something menial. The cerebral fireworks will help you along your work better than whistling can accomplish
