Welcome to the The Anarchist Monastery, a weekly podcast and not so much a building, more a state of mind, one shared by craftsman and resident, Hugh Bernays and Daniel Roy Connelly, a visitor, teacher, theatre director and author.
From the 2000 year old city of York, Hugh and Daniel interrogate each another to try to ascertain who we are and how we got here. We probe little known histories of this beautiful city in search of where 'here’ really is.*
If you’re the kind of person who values the use of the imagination and likes to take the road less travelled in coming to an understanding of the world, The Anarchist Monastery is the podcast for you.

    Stefan Sorgner Interview

    Stefan Sorgner Interview

    This is a special episode, coming from John Cabot University in Rome, where I am joined by my colleague and friend, Stefan Lorenz Sorgner. Stefan is Associate Professor of Philosophy at JCU and central to two of today's hot button fields, namely Trans- and Post-humanism. In a turbo-charged 75 minutes, in perhaps the hottest recording studio I have ever been in - it was 40 degrees in there - I interrogate Professor Sorgner, and seek answers to these hugely problematic fields of discourse.
    I am enormously grateful to Stefan, and, for his time and availability, to Brian Thomson, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Communications At JCU and Coordinator of the Digital Media Lab.
    Enjoy the show!
