Episode 26: The King's Two Bodies The Atlas Project

    • News

For this episode we got some inspiration from an essay from Isaac Ariail Reed. In an essay about political mythologies titled The King's Two Bodies and The Crisis of Liberal Modernity he describes what happens when we lose powerful symbols that unite the sacred and the secular and our frustrating attempts to replace them, or at least fill in the gaps. If you want to understand Trump's appeal, this stuff is really helpful. Excelsior!
