Content and Media Mentions
Coram Deo Church in Omaha, NE did a half hour podcast discussing my three worlds of evangelicalism piece. There’s some agreement, some disagreement.
I wrote about Generation X stepping into battle. Generational analysis is one of those things that always provokes a discussion. In this piece I analyze why so many of the prominent dissident or heterodox people we see in the online influencer space - from Joe Rogan to Glenn Greenwald - are Generation X.
My podcast for the week is on the third worldization of America, with a specific focus on the decreasing reliability of our electrical grid and the sharp increase in the number of ordinary people installing backup power. (Subscribers can read the transcript).
You can listen to my podcast on Apple, Google, or YouTube.
