    20: PUA for the “Non-Select Male” w/Obsidian (and some news!)

    20: PUA for the “Non-Select Male” w/Obsidian (and some news!)

    After a quick summary of the latest news in the incelosphere (of which there’s been plenty, and which will be covered in detail over a two-part episode starting next week), Naama sits down with radio host Mumia Obsidian Ali (@ObsidianFiles), a cultural commentator on the black manosphere, and new dating guru “for the non-select male.” Naama has been a regular guest on Obsidian Radio Daily, and today takes him up on his challenge: “Send your incels over to me.” We need some levity and some encouragement in this trying time, and the conversation provides it, despite touching on many sensitive issues. Naama also teases her new podcast Esc-Hate, which will be dropping on the Crawlspace Media Network in a couple of weeks, trailer coming soon!!! —————————————————————— Follow Mumia Obsidian Ali (on Twitter @ObsidianFiles, on Instagram @ObsidianRadio, or YouTube @TheObsidianMediaNetwork2) and check out his hilarious daily radio show: http://mixlr.com/mumia-obsidian-ali —————————————————————— INCEL is created and produced by Naama Kates for Crawlspace Media.

    19: One Before I Rope — the TRUEcel (part 2).

    19: One Before I Rope — the TRUEcel (part 2).

    Hello world and welcome back! Today INCEL returns to Bummer Drummer, a “truecel” from the American heartland. This week, he goes on to describe his attitudes about the Beta Male Uprising, and violence in the name of a cause, as well as how he came around to believing in it. Bummer's story is gripping, moving, and filled with surprises, and provides a tremendous amount of insight into what can drive people to the violent fringes.

    18: One Before I Rope — the TRUEcel (part 1).

    On this last day of the decade (and the season), INCEL presents our listeners with a good old-fashioned cliffhanger!!! Episode 18 introduces Bummer Drummer, a “truecel” from the American heartland. Bummer is unfiltered and full of pathos; he also holds some interesting views, which you’ll hear all about on the Season 2 premiere next year (same time next week)... —————————————————————— INCEL is created and produced by Naama Kates for Crawlspace Media.

    Incel Trailer (60 second version)

    Incel Trailer (60 second version)

    Chads and Stacys, and red pills and black pills, and incels and normies and cucks, oh my. Maybe you’ve heard these words before and wondered what they meant. Just beneath the boundaries of polite society, is an entire world that most of us will never even see: the shadow world of the involuntary celibate community, where young men from across the globe find each other... for better or worse. Are you game? I’m Naama Kates, the host and creator of INCEL, and this podcast is an excavation. We go deep, and sometimes dark. We meet some incredible people. But you will not leave this journey the same person you were before you started. So be forewarned. Listen to INCEL on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

    17: Perma-banned/Disengagement

    This week on INCEL, Naama talks to Reggie (RegisteredUser), a 19 year old engineering student from the from the UK, who was recently permanently banned from the forum, after multiple warnings, because, honestly, he was just kind of over it??? Reggie’s account is an example of “disengagement,” which differs from deradicalization in that it entails the cessation of group involvement, rather than a complete alteration in worldview.—————————————————————— INCEL is created and produced by Naama Kates for Crawlspace Media.

Latest episode

In the most recent episode The audio quality of the interview subject’s voice is almost impossible to hear. I’ve enjoyed this project and I’ve given the benefit of the doubt re some of the amateurish interview skills but this episode was like listening to half of a phone call.

Wow

I came for the curiosity and stayed for the education. Thank you for this very thoughtful insight into a very difficult lifestyle.
