The C-Realm is a weekly, interview-based program which features discussions on topics ranging from a possible technological singularity, to entheogenic exploration, the re-localization of community and agriculture, and the competing narratives by which we define ourselves and navigate our world.
573: The Long Revenge

572: Fully Automated Luxury Communism
KMO welcomes Professor Nicholas Kiersey to the C-Realm to talk about the guiding principles that could lead technological humanity to a post-scarcity, post-capitalist existence in which nobody has to toil, and everyone has everything they need to live a fulfilling and dignified life. Seem unlikely? Prof. Nick isn't here to argue for the technical feasibility. He's here to clear away the conceptual obstacles to envisioning such an existence. Both KMO and Prof Nick are science fiction fans, and they can both be found in a weekly discussion of SF on Clubhouse: https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/sci-fi-politics
571: Men Need Not Apply
KMO talks with First of Incelmatics about the reasons why so many young men see no hope of finding girlfriends, much less getting married or starting families. It seems like women have all of the power in online interactions and in academic and corporate settings. Young men are increasingly demoralized, cynical, desperate and, in some instances, willing to go out in a blaze of violent infamy. This episode contains no proposed solutions.You can find a longer version of this conversation on YouTube.

570: Pathologies of Powerlessness
The Soul of Left Twitter
KMO welcomes Ben Burgis back to the C-Realm Podcast to talk about the themes of his most recent book, Cancelling Comedians While the World Burns: A Critique of the Contemporary Left. Ben is definitely on and for the political left, but he doesn't like the way leftists unthinkingly adopt a capitalist realist mindset and see their primary agency in punishing the heretics (or the careless) in their own ranks.
Anecdotes Trump Data
I see discarded masks on the ground all the time now.
KMO talks with Dr. Steven Vannoy about the psychological effects of extended mask wearing, particularly on children, and the neurological rewards that mask shaming produces. It feels really good to think we're in the right. Later, KMO reads and responds to an email from Bob Brown about dangers of taking a vaccine that has been rushed to market without the usual battery of clinical trials.
Monster Worldviews - All Out Attack
It had been too long since we heard from Keith Preston of Attack the System. In this episode of the C-Realm Podcast, we get Keith's take on the pandemic, the 2020 election cycle, and the weird belief systems that people gravitate too in times of high social anxiety. We save his extensive historical take on the events of 6 January, 2021 for the C-Realm Vault Podcast.
Always a commitment to quality and honesty since day one. OG podcastin’.
Thorough & Thoughtful
It’s rare that a podcaster hits every angle of complicated moral cultural topics. KMO will rarely leave you wanting to input an unconsidered aspect of something which is where we often find ourselves as podcast junkies. He is well versed in peak oil and the slow decay of civilization which I really appreciate.
KMO presents an ever evolving show that tackles the most important issues. Topics include politics, philosophy, environmentalism, and economics. Guests are generally left wing and are always intelligent and interesting. KMO is a great host with a soothing voice and thoughtful, deliberate contributions.
