Future Left Podcast Ep. 56: The Survivalists of Silicon Valley
We spent some time psychoanalyzing the survivalists of Silicon Valley this week, inspired by a fascinatingly insane article in The New Yorker by Evan Osnos. It's an interesting look at one of the oddities of the libertarian/frat boy/paranoia culture colliding with each other in the form of underground bunkers, elitist consumption habits, and doomsday preppin'. We also start by talking about Adam's workshop at Tech 2025 and week one of the G-D Trump administration. Maybe an underground bunker doesn't seem so silly after all?
