Description

Our culture is in crisis and I don’t trust woke universities and authoritarian governments to give us the solution. I examine modern culture through history and anthropology, as well as other sources like indigenous knowledge and common sense. This is a show for those who love academics but hate academia, and want to learn about social studies without the constraining limits of woke universities. Reach me on Discord, https://discord.gg/KhJgpMj6Jj and other sites: https://pod.link/1650280020, If you have any thoughts you'd like to share please email me: IllegitimateScholar@gmail.com
