    Academic Agent - Who Rules Us?

    Academic Agent - Who Rules Us?

    I speak with AA about his political evolution and how it mirrors mine, about Libertarianism and its discontents, about the "current thing" as it manifests itself in the conflict in Ukraine, about blackpills and whitepills, and much more.   

    Academic Agent is an internet renaissance man, one of the most prolific and successful content producers on the dissident right. You can find his work at the Academic Agency, where he offers courses on everything from economics to politics and research, on Twitter, on Substack, and most importantly on Youtube.  

    His book The Populist Delusion is also out now on Imperium Press.   

    His recommended subversives are Sam Francis and Julius Evola.

Dissident Ideas from a Feminine Voice

I happened upon Alex via the Triggernometry podcast and was blown away by her sophisticated and articulate, yet incredibly based understanding of the forces at work in our modern world. I’d listened to traditional conservative media for quite some time, but something about the movement has rung hollow over the last 2 years. Alex speaks plainly about human nature and the turbulent political and societal tides in which we find ourselves in 2022, tying in historical insights, probing questions, and spiritual revelations in each episode. She is an incredible interviewer. In the past I’ve been turned off to the New Right by all the “ick” content on so-called “frog Twitter,” but Alex cuts through all that and gets to the underlying truths within the dissident framework.

Francis, Samuel ,

Rationalist to Traditionalist

“Alex Kaschuta is proof that natural processes like marriage and motherhood, or even just urban overload, will turn a woman into a right-wing valkyrie.”

Best podcast out there
