1.1 Alternative Factors: A Deep Dive into American Malaise
Where do Donald Trump, Adam Smith, Sam Harris, Friedrich Nietzsche, Kellyanne Conway, Karl Marx, Jordan Peterson, and Saddam Hussein all meet up and converse over a tacocoptered meal? But of course within the depths of The Caves of Altamira. Join me and my guest George Khoury for a wide-ranging exploration of the contemporary state of American society and the forces past and present shaping the times. Hear us confront our looming middle-agedness as we struggle to recall nearly ubiquitous facets of popular culture. Applaud or wince at our efforts to punch up as this scrappy upstart podcast goes after some of America's most cherished charlatans. Lastly, stick around to the end to hear George make his first public announcement of a book project that centers on a genuinely mind blowing aspect of his recent family history. All that and more in this inaugural episode of The Caves of Altamira, a safe place to do unsafe things. Thanks so much for listening! Please leave a rating or review and subscribe.
