Acid Horizon is a theory podcast which confronts global crisis and the specter of a world that could be free. One of the many goals of Acid Horizon is to enrich discourses of liberation through a non-sectarian approach to reading theory. In the spirit of thinkers like Deleuze and Guattari, we endeavor to provide a space which values theory as a creative force, not just as the topic of debate. We also connect theory to the pervasive political challenges faced by global citizens. On the podcast, we cover a variety of new, historic, and lesser-known texts of political philosophy.
