    #97 Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors - Rex Feral

    #97 Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors - Rex Feral

    Paladin Press (rest in peace) liked to court controversy. So when a mother of two approached them with a manuscript for a crime novel, they asked her to write something spicier. The result? Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors, a step-by-step guide on how to work as a contract killer. The power of marketing was so strong that this book was implicated in a triple murder, leading to Paladin Press being sued. Flying too close to the sun, et cetera.

    #96 The Managerial Revolution - James Burnham

    James Burnham, a Trotskyite-turned-conservative, wrote The Managerial Revolution in 1941. In it, he describes the processes by which capitalist societies become managerial, and by which capitalists are displaced by managers as those who control the means of production.

    #94 Selective Breeding and the Birth of Philosophy - Costin Alamariu

    #94 Selective Breeding and the Birth of Philosophy - Costin Alamariu

    Costin Alamariu, who may or may not be Bronze Age Pervert, completed his doctoral thesis in political philosophy at Yale in 2015. This thesis was re-published in 2023 under the title 'Selective Breeding and the Birth of Philosophy'. There's a lot to this book, but it's mostly about the relationship between philosophy, heritability, aristocracy and nature. If you've ever wondered about the eugenic origins of philosophy, then listen on.

    #93 Meltdown - Nick Land

    #93 Meltdown - Nick Land

    Meltdown (1994) sees Nick Land dissolve the posthuman future in a solvent of technocapital, continental philosophy, cyberpunk, bacterial warfare and retrotemporal attraction, all dressed up in implanted mirrorshades with a highly-cinematic 9mm.

    #92 The Book of Five Rings - Miyamoto Musashi

    #92 The Book of Five Rings - Miyamoto Musashi

    Miyamoto Musashi is Japan's most famous swordsman, a ronin in the 17th century who was victorious in over 60 duels, founded a famed swordfighting school, and achieved such a level of combat mastery that he learned the essential nature of mastery itself. The Book of Five Rings (1645) was written by Musashi in a cave, towards the end of his life. It contains his thoughts on the Way of Strategy, concrete combat advice, as well as a philosophical account of what mastery truly is.

Hilarious…wicked…utterly lovable!

You guys are awesome! Hard to find podcasts that are both “dark” and brainy. This one’s among the few. In the event that this review is seen, please consider doing an episode on THE ANATOMY OF MELANCHOLY. It’s primordial “woo” and totally insane.

Really liked your episodes on Evola, Mike Ma, BAP, I would be interested to see episodes on people like Nick Land, Spengler, and Dugin.
