• Deferred Gnosis Podcast •
We live in a world of gnosis deferred. We have come to a point in our societal evolution where self-awareness and existential cognizance are scarce; and now more then ever, we are desperately struggling to reconcile the ethical, moral, political, and religious shortcomings of our global zeitgeist.
The primary purpose of the Deferred Gnosis podcast is to bring together contrasting perspectives sourced directly from the fringe in order to deconstruct the preconceptions of our culture through the use of critical thought and passionate discourse. By relentlessly investigating the whys and wherefores most are unwilling to explore, we will grasp those fleeting eternal truths necessary to liberate us from the shackles of sedentary Belief. Although we indeed live in a mad world, we will unravel the pervasive madness by sharpening reason against the whetstone of radical thought.
Deferred Gnosis is a monthly podcast, the primary format of which is topic-driven discussion, with the occasional guest to weigh in on particular subjects. On every installment, we will devote a segment of the show to showcase underground music and art.
Welcome to the Deferred Gnosis podcast…
This is not punditry – this is philosophizing with a hammer.

He is the host of the “Deferred Gnosis Podcast,” a show focused primarily on investigating and discussing contemporary philosophical, spiritual, and religious topics; the primary purpose of the Deferred Gnosis Podcast is to bring together contrasting perspectives sourced directly from the fringe in order to deconstruct the preconceptions of our culture through the use of critical thought and passionate discourse.
