We uncover the most rebellious ideas in philosophy, human potential and transcendence to find direction through the chaos of the times.
A Time Between Worlds, Zak Stein

Jordan Petersonitis, Jonathan Rowson
Jonathan Rowson is a philosopher and chess grandmaster, who did an interview with Jordan Peterson at the Royal Society for the Arts in January 2018.
In the aftermath he received a lot of criticism online from Peterson's fans, and spent six months trying to make sense of his interaction with the 'Peterson Phenomenon'. This took the form of a long essay, trying to wrestle with what he called 'Petersonitis': https://integral-review.org/an-episte...
Now, more than three years on, he talks through the experience with Rebel Wisdom's David Fuller, the creator of multiple films about the Peterson phenomenon. Full interview with Peterson at the RSA is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OD-VC...

Pandemics & Podcasts, Heather Heying Q&A
Over the last year, Heather Heying and her husband Bret Weinstein have turned their podcast the Dark Horse, into a commentary on the pandemic.
It's a long way from their background as evolutionary biology professors at Evergreen college, which they were forced to leave in 2017.
How has the journey been over the last year, and what can be learnt from it?
This Q&A was recorded in April in the Rebel Wisdom Digital Campfire. To see upcoming events, and join conversations like this, check here: https://rebelwisdom.co.uk/campfire-events

Lessons from the Brian Rose Implosion, with Nic Gabriel & Coffeezilla
What have we learnt from Brian Rose's spectacular London Mayor flameout, and assorted other scams? This was a conversation including Nic Gabriel, the original co-host of London Real, Coffeezilla, who has done so much to expose Brian over the last months, hosted by Rebel Wisdom in the Digital Campfire.
David Fuller has just written a new Medium piece summarising the unanswered questions about Brian's mayoral bid, in particular, whether any of the money from the 'Digital Freedom Platform' scam was used to fund it. Brian is threatening to sue anyone who makes that claim, by the way: https://medium.com/rebel-wisdom/did-brian-rose-use-the-money-he-scammed-from-his-followers-to-run-for-mayor-bb317cf68ddb

Eye opening to new horizons.
Rebel wisdom offers many new perspectives and interesting ideas. I love the podcast for challenging my thinking and leads to personal growth. Thank you!
For a moment I thought this was a good podcast. Now, especially after listening to the latest from Jamie Weal, I realize this is a lot of self important tools that think they are smarter than all before and they most certainly know the better way. Whilst completely overlooking all the things they can’t possibly know and all the stories of people before who thought they knew so many things and were proven completely wrong. For all these people know an asteroid hits the world and any possibility of uploading our conscience to software is destroyed, or at least severely set back if it’s even possible in the first place. People working on robotics are having a heck of time replicating anything close to human choice making but here this self absorbed blind man think we’ll be uploading our consciences in thirty years. Maybe these guys should start living in the actual world where things tend to not be so far this way or that way; and when they are it’s usually a very bad thing.
Host is a shill
Just listened to the newest episode at time of post. Episode 130 in regards to free speech, the host spent half the episode attempting to paint his guests
Into a corner. Both guests were gracious in the face of the hosts amateur attempts at shaming them for entertaining the idea of being skeptical of the covid vaccine. Everytime the guests made it clear that their intentions were to hear nee voices and new info. , the host mercilessly kept pushing his opinion and attempting to milk a contrition or apology out of two blameless guests. The host’s after finity for the elite and billionaire class could not be on greater display. I ponder how much of this podcast is financed by big pharma... WHAT A SHILL!!
