On my first ever Against Everyone live event, I talk about psychoanalysis, leftism, and identity politics with two of my favorite AEWCH guests, Todd McGowan and Peter Rollins! The event was part of the theology-meets-psychoanalysis conference Wake, in Belfast, in North of Ireland.
Peter Rollins is a philosopher and theologian who's been on the show before (way back on AEWCH 14, and more recently on AEWCH 55). Todd McGowan is a psychoanalytic theorist and film studies professor; he's also the host of the great podcast, Why Theory, and author of many amazing books. He originally appeared on AEWCH 47.
We talk about ID politics, Lacan vs Deleuze, Peterson vs Zizek, psychoanalysis and the left, and more!
This episode is very different than others, not the least of which because there's a Q&A after - which I always long for with my epsiodes! and not just because it was in front of an audience. It's different because there is some tension and conflict (though not any animosity, of course! I love Peter and Todd). It was even a bit difficult for me, for reasons I lay out in the introduction. That said, I also think it turned out great.
In fact, I'd love to do more live events, as this one was a bit of a test run for me. So if you'd like to organize an AEWCH event in your city (or a city nearby) with a locally-situated guest, give me a shout out, and we'll see what we can do.

(No show notes this week; the ep is pretty self explanatory, but back to them next week!)
Until next time!
