    #47 Live, Laugh, Love with Curtis Yarvin

    #47 Live, Laugh, Love with Curtis Yarvin

    Today my guest is Curtis Yarvin.
    According to Wikipedia: “Curtis Guy Yarvin (born 1973), also known by the pen name Mencius Moldbug, is an American far-right blogger.[4][5] Yarvin and his ideas are often associated with the alt-right, despite his and the efforts of other Dark Enlightenment thinkers to distance themselves from it.[6][7] From 2007 to 2014 he authored a blog called "Unqualified Reservations" which argued that American democracy is a failed experiment,[8] and that it should be replaced by monarchy or corporate governance.[9] He is known, along with fellow neo-reactionary Nick Land, for developing the anti-egalitarian and anti-democratic ideas behind the Dark Enlightenment.”
    I decided to speak with Curtis to suss out his darkness for myself. We discuss the fragility of online communities, the woke infiltration of the arts, his fun Communist grandparents, and Based Biden.

Insightful and touching podcast

I enjoyed listening to Colin’s podcast with Thomas McConkie. The sincerity and honesty of Colin and his guests deepened my awareness of my own areas of potential growth and inspired me.

Interesting topics whether you live in Utah or not.

Thank you!

An up & coming Tim Ferris, minus the cockiness

Like a more humble version of top podcaster Tim Ferris, Colin Morris explores how psychedelics, religion, tragedy, and other forces cause us to change for the better. Even more astounding is the fact Colin hails from Utah, a very conservative state. I can't wait to hear more episodes!
