    Spencer Klavan - The Freedom To Constrain

    Spencer Klavan - The Freedom To Constrain

    I speak to Spencer about being a classicist in a post-modern world, hysteria as the baseline feeling, the longing for order and guidance, and how it manifests under a system where order is seen as fundamentally oppressive. We also speak about being gay and adjacent to the dissident right and BAP's perspective on the origin of homosexuality.

    Thomas777 - No Escape From History

Civitas Peregrina ,

Top notch

Thoughtful discussions with a natural interviewer, who gives the guest plenty of space to talk but isn’t afraid to drop in her own insights. Crucial listening.
