I am excited to announce that I am now recording a new weekly podcast on modern civilization and live players, with my good friend and co-host Erik Torenberg. The Live Players podcast is available on Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Podcasts. You can listen to our most recent episode on the politicization of history, the Bronze Age collapse, and Europe’s economic decline on YouTube here. If you are interested, be sure to listen, follow, and subscribe to Live Players on all the platforms you use, so that you never miss a conversation! New episodes are released every Wednesday.

I have also explained what we can learn from Henry Kissinger and why our civilization could fall like those of the ancients, and what to do about it.
