This is part two - let’s call it P2 - of a continuing conversation with blogger Recluse. This builds off our chat from last June and is about one of the lesser known and lesser discussed sources of power in times both past and present. We started with the Knights of Malta and now we’re spiraling out into some other related secret Catholic orders.
Gordon White returns to the show with first-time guest Jay Springett to talk solarpunk, a movement in speculative fiction, art, fashion and activism. It’s infrastructure as resistance, it’s ingenuity, generativity, independence and community, and it asks the question: “What does a sustainable civilization look like and how can we get there?”
Jasun Horsley returns to the podcast for a conversation about his latest book, The Vice of Kings: How Socialism, Occultism and the Sexual Revolution Engineered a Culture of Abuse. The title is quite reflective of the content of the book and the content of this conversation. Definitely one that’ll rattle some cages.
