Listen now | Evgenia and I talk to Joe Costello about the politics of technology — nuclear energy, the internet, Wall Street, American democracy, the Romans, the need for new ways to organize society…
I ran out of "amens" and "halelujas" listening to this. Great show and great conversation with Costello. So many important points made and great questions asked. This was theraputic to listen to, along with your conversation with Galluzzo.
No one in the USA wants to think too hard about what to do with their lives other than buying McCrap and stuffing it in a McHouse like a giant McToybox. It's not like people are hypnotized with some magic mind trick, they've just had so many decades of living in this advertising-fueled existence they're subconsciously terrified of stepping outside of it. No one here likes talking about this. Rich, poor, middle class. No one wants to discuss what's outside the bubbles we live in, until they get popped by reality (war, disaster, disease, death).
Great, great show. Looking forward to more.
Great episode. I didn’t know that Joe sounds like Jimmy McGill.
Delightful collaboration! It’s nice to listen to others talk about reality by proxy. It’s difficult to find amongst others who say I just don’t understand the game like they do.
Thank you for exposing me to this man. This interview red doubles my inane high ramblings that this current merchant class are in fact bio matriarchs. Everything currently regarding social media is biometrical.
From tick tock to asymmetrical biometrical warfare (propaganda). I heard an interview with a former Facebook employee on some NPR podcast where he mentioned they could predict with over 99% accuracy a person's behavior. Strictly by how they interact on social media. Anyway thank you again.
I was listening to this episode so many times I finally did something new, and checked if Joe had a substack. I thought you guys were the only ones out there making sense(not really, but close).
I’m having a good time going through Joe Costello’s substack. My brain feels like it’s not rotting. Rare thing these these days.
Thank you for exposing me to this man.
