IRLmaxxing Against the Soydevs, Indie Magazines, Filmmaking, Urbit

Today I want to share some highlights from the last few episodes of the Other Life podcast.

"Justin can be a bit of an iconoclast on Twitter, but that’s just the way the medium works. In his podcast, I’ve seen him be a very sensitive and inquisitive interviewer. It’s one of my top listens, lately." (Review from November 11)

"I’ve been really over podcasts lately. It seems that most in the theory/philosophy genre are too long and watered down... With Justin, this is not the case... He always has an idea or interpretation of the culture that is insightful and original. (Review from November 1)

From PhD to LandChad: Digital Sovereignty, Christianity, and IRLmaxxing with Luke Smith

Luke Smith was a PhD student in linguistics before he grew his Youtube channel to 168k subscribers—with his unique perspectives on digital, financial, and mental sovereignty. This is the first time he's told his whole story at length.

Other Life #212 live at the imperceptible mansion (#3): Youtube / Podcast

I invited Luke to be the special guest at this year's mansion because I think he exemplifies the Other Life mentality.

Luke has totally exited the institutional grid, he maintains an idiosyncratic perspective and lifestyle, and he publishes his ideas to a growing audience without compromising his principles.

Luke only uses Free and Open Source Software, does not watch any TV or streaming services, and recently became an Orthodox Christian.

I think you'll find this talk interesting, unique, funny, and inspiring.
