    33: “Ocean of Oceans” w/ Abdi, Islamicel

    After the mayhem of this past weekend, which included a lynching, a looting, and burning cities, Naama decides to treat you to a conversation with “Abdi” (@notepadtxt), a Turkish-Dutch incel whose insight, wisdom and compassion might help us all heal. And lord knows we need that now. They also touch on r/incelexit, where he acts as a “mod lite.”  ————————————————————— INCEL is created and produced by Naama Kates for Crawlspace Media.

    46: The Artist Formerly Known as Grotesque Subhuman, w/ Todd Z.

    Today’s episode has a little bit of everything: a good dose of hope, peppered with drama, and a really welcome surprise. It features another familiar faceless face, as you probably know from the title. You first heard him here on episode 31, with Grotesque Subhuman. He's come a long way, a way that may surprise you. And his name is Todd. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It's finally here, boyos. A new sponsor, and a new solution to some of your deepest woes, perhaps.

    45: Titanic, Ironic, St. Valentine's Special, w/ Abdi, Master & Frail.

    The title says it all: in honor of the upcoming despicable, consumerist, pie-eyed Pagan holiday, today's episode features a conversation amongst Abdi, Master and Frail. Topics range from the funny to the forlorn, colored by a romanticism for technology and deep thought.

    44: It’s All Over Now, w/ Carkudo

    This week, Naama sits down with Carkudo, a true OG and former borschtcel. Carkudo served as a moderator of the legendary r/incels, and discussed the origins and changes he’s observed about treatment of incels, and the incel community itself from his vantage of over 15 years. He clears up some misconceptions, discusses his own journey, and offers projections for the future. Plenty of info, insight, and wisdom in this hearty meal of an episode, so dig in. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This week's episode is sponsored by Boston Green Health (@BGreenHealth), New England's most trusted brand for premier CBD products.

    43: "As soon as I get my gun..." w/ Ethan H.

    Welcome back, welcome to 2021. Happy New Year, world! On today's episode of INCEL, Naama opens up the New Year with a bit of housekeeping, including addressing a very recent review, the show's upcoming schedule and episodes, and some of the news we'll be revisiting next week, before getting to an incredibly inspiring conversation with Ethan H, a remarkable young man whose perspective changed after surviving a very serious suicide attempt with a firearm. TW, as usual, for substantial talk of suicide. Ethan (@rl_skybox on IG) doesn't identify as an incel, but he's experienced many of the same grievances throughout his life, and finds a lot of truth in the blackpill, so his story will resonate.

Good show, frustrating release schedule

Wish the show was released with some regularity. Also uniquely American how the host feels like they are being pigeon holed ideologically because they disagree with the “left”.

Disappointing

I was really hoping this podcast would be good but had to give up after six episodes.
Most interviews are exhausting, with people going on long tangents and few constructive or critical questions. There's constant mention of "studies" or "facts" with absolutely no reference to where the information is actually coming from.
All in all a very frustrating podcast that lacks structure and comprehensive research.
