Eruditorum Presscast: David Gerard (Neoreaction a Basilisk 1)


This month I'm joined by a variety of cool guests to whom I sent preview copies of Neoreaction a Basilisk to talk about the book. First up is David Gerard, who's been volunteer copyediting the book, and to whom I serialized it as I was writing it in 2000 word chunks. We talk about why on Earth he agreed to do such a ridiculous thing, and about what's so interesting (and frustrating) about the three major figures of the book, Eliezer Yudkowsky, Mencius Moldbug, and Nick Land. It's a fun chat, and you can check it out here.

And, more importantly, you can back Neoreaction a Basilisk on Kickstarter here - we're just over $1000 away from "Theses on Trump."

"a Doctor Who podcast" - Moldbug as failed Davros.

"and who spent time in the trenches of LessWrong and reading neoreactionaries before it was cool." No, I didn't read them then either. Life is too short to read Moldbug. You did all the reading so nobody else has to. People should give you all the money just for saving them from that.
