Subversive is a podcast by Alex Kaschuta about ideas that may not fit neatly into the Overton window and could use a nudge, or a sledgehammer. Alex chats to thinkers across the spectrum from iconoclast philosophers, rogue scientists, *real* journalists, and our true intellectual elite, Twitter anons.
Episode details

I speak to Walter about what makes one a dissident at the moment and what the nature of a coalition can be that unites a Romanian mom with a Hollywood chad-type, the necessity of free speech and freedom for the creative, what the true believer archetype looks like from the top and how many of them there are, what power looks like up close and much more.
