Listen. Be Uncomfortable. Learn. Act. Warning: The topics, views, and opinions discussed on this show will be polarizing, unpopular, and may trigger you, hopefully, to learn more and to act, but they may just make you upset. Every debate, discussion, or interview will be uncensored and unbridled. The whole point is to push the boundaries of your knowledge, to discuss topics we avoid in “polite company”.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 34Society depends upon the people in it being able to rely upon expectations about how it and the other people in it will function.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 31At the heart of communist and communistic thought is faith in a kind of historical trajectory toward utopia that's driven by social alchemy.
