    If there is some glimmer of hope for the internet or for the cybernetic society that we find ourselves intractably enmeshed in, that hope lies in the type of para-academic content that podcasts like Outsider Theory provide.

    This is seriously a great podcast. Geoff is one of the most knowledgeable, thoughtful and prepared podcast hosts I have come across. Among other things, this podcast offers an academic dissection of today’s subcultures/countercultures, and in doing so gives many modern issues rich philosophical context you probably won’t get elsewhere. It is especially enlightening for those like myself who aren’t very online or involved in the arts.

Do you recoil at contemporary forms of fundamentalism marching beneath banners of ‘progress,’ ‘equity,’ ‘free the child sex slaves before they’re cooked and eaten,’ and the like? Are the prevalence in the society of nihilism and ressentiment iss... more
